“The Very Different Visual World of an Autistic Child”

Given by Ian Jordan

The Visual and Associated problems experienced by those on the spectrum range from life changing to minimal and they are very difficult for parents and non-specialists to recognise. They range from facial recognition problems which can be terrifying, to synaesthesia (where senses are mixed up), to timing and mapping difficulties (where a child cannot trust their own senses), to pain and anxiety. Problems eg, pain during haircuts, which do not appear to be visual often have a visual component. We will explore tics, how speech can sometimes be helped using vision, to changing smells, eating problems and gait.We may discuss night terrors, and finally time permitting present a demonstration of effect which is unique in ASC

“It’s like a magic show but pure science”
