Stereotyped Movements among Children Who Are Visually Impaired
Gal, Eynat; Dyck, Murray J.
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v103 n11 p754-765 Dec 2009
Does the severity of visual impairment affect the prevalence and severity of stereotyped movements? In this study, children who were blind or had low vision, half of whom had intellectual disabilities, were assessed. The results revealed that blindness and global delays were associated with more sensory processing dysfunction and more stereotyped movements. (Contains 2 tables.)
