Product Description

Cerebral visual impairment, also known as cortical visual impairment, has become the most common cause of visual impairment in children in the United States and the developed world. Expert contributors from many countries illuminate the complexities of vision loss related to brain injury and neurological causes and provide readers with approaches to
assessment and intervention. Vision and the Brain provides current research and thinking on CVI including: the role of the brain in vision; effects of brain damage on vision; impact of CVI on child development; consideration in behavioral diagnosis; CVI, autism spectrum disorders, and ADHD; eye movement disorders in children with CVI; and refractive errors and impaired focusing.
