Description of Considerations in the Behavioral Diagnosis of CVI: Issues, Cautions, and Potential Outcomes

CVI may go undiagnosed because the behaviors exhibited by affected children may be unrecognized or misconstrued as behavioral or developmental disorders. This chapter explains how childhood CVI may go undetected owing to its many possible presentations; highlights the potential for CVI to contribute to, or masquerade as, a developmental or behavioral disorder (such as ADHD or autism spectrum disorders); and outlines the potential impact of an undetected or hidden disability resulting from CVI on the child, the family, and the community at large.
