Orthoptic and ophthalmologic consultation is an essential step in the diagnosis and treatment of learning disorders, particularly in children with dyspraxia. Such a specialized consultation allows identification of cognitive visual disorders, especially oculomotor or visual-spatial impairment, which disrupt the cognitive processes involved in key academic tasks such as reading or handwriting. It is therefore essential to screen and manage these disorders early in order to implement a rehabilitation plan and counsel educators so as to facilitate learning. After describing cognitive visual disorders in the context of dyspraxia, we discuss principal signs, assessment and ophthalmologic and orthoptic management as conducted in our practice. Several clinical cases illustrate our approach.
