The links between seeing and sensory threshold may have implications for many children with visual processing problems like severe amblyopia, convergence insufficiency, or visual perceptual disorders (e.g. nonverbal learning disabilities). How many times does it seem that these children bump into things, don't know how they hurt themselves, or "have a high pain threshold". Because these children cannot properly see even their own bodies, they don't feel as much, and therefore may be at greater risk for really hurting themselves (activate fewer protective reflexes).
