Wondering If Anyone Has Any Experience With Vision Therapy Or Integrated Learning Systems

Wondering If Anyone Has Any Experience With Vision Therapy Or Integrated Learning Systems

It is really hard to get coverage for vision therapy. I , basically had to scream at the insurance company, and we got a representative from my husbands work to fight for us

Their reading and reading comprehension will be affected. For my daughter... she had difficulty tracking, knowing where to start, follow to next line, or end, sight words remembering them. Like reading "the" and still have trouble with it on the next page. She flips letters, used to flip numbers... She also takes 4 times longer to read a sentence that would only take seconds. See blurry, double, get sick, head aches, get dizzy wehn reading. Preffer not to read. Get literally sick to their stomachs because it is very difficult for them. The optometrist will not be able to tell unless you do a vision motor skills test... which is usually covered by insurance. There is also something called Irland syndrome but you'd have to get screened for it through a therapist. Watch your child read something in front of you and watch what their pupils move... I hope this helps...

She is not autistic though...She is my neurotypical/not so typical child... I am applying for different things but I might go higher when it starts working because that can make insurances change their minds for others... They mentioned if she had gotten it from an injury and it was part of recovery then it would be covered?

I wish I had an answer for you, we were lucky enough to get coverage by fighting and clawing with the insurance company. . .I would maybe try getting coverage through ot or physical therapy if you have coverage for that. How about any non-profit autism organizations that give out money to families in need. I volunteer on a committee like that here locally. Network with others in your community and see if you can raise the funds that way. . .dont know if that helps at all. . .

@A MyAutismTeam Member... My son seems to experience many of the signs of vision problems but what exactly will the pupils do if he is experiencing problems?
