Abstract

S.G. still manifests many of the behavior characteristics of an autistic child. Optometric vision care was significant in that it did allow S.G. to develop better visual contact, longer periods of meaningful attentiveness, and to establish some rudimentary relationships with situations and people. His visual contact is still quite limited to things and space at relatively close distances. Binocular functioning has markedly improved.
