Hypotonia is a state of low muscle-tone i. Hypotonia isn't a particular medical condition, but a potential outward manifestation of several different diseases and disorders that affect motor nerve control by the brain or muscle strength. Identifying hypotonia is usually relatively simple, but figuring out the actual cause can be challenging. The long-term results of hypotonia on a kid's development rely primarily on the seriousness of the muscle weakness as well as the cause.
Prior to using the special ambient lenses, Zarin had a problem with spatial awareness. He would bang through doorways and slam through people Too often, visual problems which would have been detected early in non-disabled children go undiagnosed and untreated for children with disabilities Don't assume that your child can't be tested Jimmy began to visually investigate his immediate environment Evelyn is now a year ahead of her chronological age in vision skills!
The background noise I had always heard before was not even apparent. I am the parent of an autistic child. Whatever the reason, all school aged children, including children with disabilities, should have a full visual examination. When making an appointment for a vision examination, go straight to a developmental optometrist, not to an ophthalmologist.
While most optometrists do not offer therapy services, one with a developmental background is able to diagnose correctable vision problems and provide therapy treatment or referrals. Don't assume that your child can't be tested; a really good eye doctor can tell you a lot about the vision performance of even non-verbal individuals.
If the optometrist tells you that your child is untestable, find one that is willing to try. The eye charts used by schools only measure clearness and sharpness of eyesight at a distance of 20 feet using a stationary target.

However, these charts do not test for eye tracking, aim, teaming, depth perception or visual perceptual skills. In other words, a chart test will not measure the ability to see adequately at 20 inches affects reading writing, math, etc.
When these same characteristics are present in non-disabled children, most primary grade teachers would ask if the child has had a complete visual examination.
My son's first, second, and third grade teacher all did and I regrettably ignored them until the fourth grade. Though he read and was disruptive, these regular education teachers all saw signs of possible vision problems: Because some sensory dysfunction is present in all individuals with autism, and because vision problems are more common in individuals with sensory impairments, it would benefit parents of children with autism greatly to become more knowledgeable about vision impairments and possible remedies.
Occupational therapists should also be interested in learning more about visual development and the improvement in motor skills when the "eye" is the culprit in "eye-hand" coordination difficulties.
My son, Kyle, had throwing and catching a ball on his IEP for about 6 years, because we knew improving coordination and reciprocal play was important. After all that time, he still was not able to catch even a beach ball. It simply bounced off his stomach and then he moved his arms, sometimes, but too late.
A vision examination two years ago revealed that Kyle had, among other things, significant convergence problems [convergence insufficiency] and could not focus on a fast moving object. His eyes were working independently, rather than together [depth perception], so that he saw two pictures instead of one [double vision].Disclaimer: All images were originally found in either public domain, were created by readers of Crystalinks, or were created by the author and are protected under US copyright.
Aug 21, · They are highly detailed and entirely in mirror writing. People would ask to use my notes sometimes, and get very confused before realizing that they were written in mirror writing.
What I have difficulty with is the sort of writing people do where the letters are forwards but the order of the letters is reversed. Mirror writing is formed by writing in the direction that is the reverse of the natural way for a given language, such that the result is the mirror image of normal writing: it appears normal when it is reflected in a mirror.
It is sometimes used as an extremely primitive form of . Homeopathy is much more of a choice than people often think it to be. One of its philosophy’s greatest breakthroughs is the realization that the body is not an object but a process with no pre-ordained limits.
Mirror-writing is the production of letters, words or sentences in reverse direction, so that they look normal when viewed in a mirror.
Some people may mirror-write intentionally; but unintentional mirror-writing is surprisingly common amongst young children, and in brain-damaged adults. Aug 29, · ANYONE ELSE write Fluent mirror writing Page 1 of 1 [ 9 posts ] Previous topic | Next topic. InAResearch Emu Egg.
