On December 4th this year we held the fourth and final Wirral Autistic Society internal conference of the year and it was one which had a jaw dropping effect on all of the delegates. The theme of the conference was Vision Perception and Autism.
We were incredibly fortunate to secure research optician, Ian Jordan, as keynote speaker of the day. Ian is based in Ayr, Scotland and works with people who have neurological conditions that affect their perception and uses meticulously refined coloured lenses, which he has developed from over 20 years research, to correct various difficulties. Many of his clients are people with autism and Ian and his team use their research findings to assess and manage visual perception in others and its effects on all sensory systems.
