    Background: Children with Down syndrome (DS) are known to have a high prevalence of visual anomalies including strabismus, high refractive errors, Brushfield spots, nystagmus, keratoconus, and external pathologies such as blepharitis and conjunctivitis. These anomalies can impair children with...

    Background: Children with Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD) are frequently hampered by motor impairment, with difficulties ranging from imitation of actions to recognition of motor intentions. Such a widespread inefficiency of the motor system is likely to interfere on the ontogeny of both motor...

    Improving ocular motility has become a widely discussed technique of assisting children who have learning disabilities. It has been assumed that learning difficulties in some cases were due to lack of binocular coordination. This paper demonstrates that learning is done in the brain and not in...
