Dr. Sharon L. Snider, Developmental Optometrist, received her doctorate from the University of Alabama in Birmingham School of Optometry in 1983.  She holds board certification with the College of Optometrists in Vision Development (COVD). Her practice, Snider Therapy Centers, Inc., is unique, as it is the only practice in the state of Alabama specializing in the field of Neuro-Visual Rehabilitation.  Therapies provided include developmental Vision Therapy, Sensory LearningTM, Neuro-optometric Rehabilitation, Auditory Integration Training, Ocular Phototherapy, Interactive Metronome, and Sports Vision Enhancement. Visual skills disorders are often misdiagnosed as ADD/ADHD or as dyslexia.  However, using neuro-visual rehabilitative therapy, success rates in the 85 to 99 percentile range have routinely been achieved.  Dr. Snider has worked with children with learning-related vision disorders since 1992, and this population still remains the predominant portion of her practice.  Additional patient populations benefiting from the therapies provided by Snider Therapy Centers, Inc. include:
  • Acquired Brain Injury
  • Autistic Spectrum Disorders
  • Sensory Integration Dysfunction
  • Pervasive Developmental Delays
Dr. Snider lectures frequently to educators, healthcare professionals, and parents on a variety of topics including learning-related visual disorders, traumatic brain injury, autistic spectrum disorders, and multisensory deficits.  She and her husband own the Snider Therapy Centers with locations in Birmingham, Alabama; Dothan, Alabama; Huntsville, Alabama; and Columbus, Mississippi.
