 Visual Diagnosis and Care of the Patient with Special Needs, edited by Marc B. Taub, OD, MS, FAAO, FCOVD, Mary Bartuccio, OD, FAAO, FCOVD, and Dominick M. Maino, OD, MEd, FAAO, FCOVD-A, provides a thorough review of the eye and vision care needs of patients with special needs. This book gives you a better understanding of the most frequently encountered developmental and acquired disabilities seen in the eye care practitioner’s office. These disabilities include patients with autism, brain injury, and Down syndrome, as well as those with psychiatric illness, dual diagnosis, and more. The text discusses, in great detail, the visual issues inherent in these populations and their possible treatment. A group of authors with approximately 500 years of experience in the field of eye care and special populations have been brought together to develop this comprehensive reference. The chapter authors are made up of the top clinicians in the field and include private practitioners and academicians from 12 colleges of optometry.                 
It may appear that this book is written primarily for eye care practitioners such as optometrists and ophthalmologists.  While vision is the overriding topic, this book serves as an excellent resource for a multitude of professions including those engaged in occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech and language therapy, physiatry, social work, pediatric medicine, and special education.
