Temple Grandin’s Advice to Parents of Autistic Children. She discusses visual issues. "Ask a child if he ever sees the print jiggle on the page. Sometimes that can be helped by printing the homework on different pastel papers." Colored paper, overlays, glasses w/ filtered lenses, & vision therapy are ways that help some w/ these problems. There are objective as well as subjective tests that developmental optometrists do to test for these issues. Don't rely on just questioning your child.
