Abstract

This literature study of existing bibliography focuses on the relationship between visual dysfunctions and learning difficulties in school aged children. In addition, the effectiveness of vision therapy in such conditions, according to the results obtained by studies in the field will be examined. The results of twenty studies were examined in order to prove that only learning difficulties are in some cases related to visual dysfunctions, and that vision therapy is effective in certain cases. The types of learning disabilities and the role of vision in learning are extensively analyzed in this literature review and it is proved that vision therapy can be beneficial for students with learning difficulties, but not a treatment for learning disabilities.

Key words: visual deficits, learning difficulties, vision therapy, visual problems, children,
reading problems, learning disabilities.
