Vision Training and ADHD

“vision training and ADHD: Some people believe that visual problems such as faulty eye movements, focus problems, and light oversensitivity of the eyes cause reading disorders. However, there are few well-designed studies of this approach.

In 1972, a joint statement highly critical of the optometric approach to learning disability treatment was issued by the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Academy of Ophthalmology and Otolaryngology, and the American Academy of Ophthalmology. In the absence of supporting evidence, most experts warn that this approach should not be used to treat learning disabilities.”
