Effectiveness of visual training on a population of cerebral palsied children

J Am Optom Assoc. 1980 Jun;51(6):607-14.


For years, researchers have recognized the very high incidence of visual anomalies in the population of children with cerebral palsy. However, little if anything has been attempted to remediate these problems. This article describes an experimental program of visual training, applied on a daily basis, to a population of inpatient, cerebral palsied children. After one year, the results were evaluated and the findings are discussed.
