2. Joshua was diagnosed as being autistic and not being a productive member of society. He had good vision and could read an eye chart. It turns out he wasn’t autistic, he had strabismus, and amblyopia and didn’t have depth perception and binocular vision. With vision therapy, his autistic behavior went away and now he is interacting normally in school. His mother created this Facebook group called Joshua’s Journey:  https://www.facebook.com/pg/Joshuas-Journey-271053699695369/about/

See his mother’s (Michele Hillman’s) testimony in support of the Atticus Act here:
