Functionally Assessing and Treating Visual Processing, Visual Perception and Visual-Motor Deficits


This engaging course dives into visual anatomy, assessment, and treatment for therapists in a wide range of settings (school-based, acute care, rehab, LTC facilities). Neurological insults such a stroke and TBIs can have a profound effect on visual skills, perception and processing. Additionally, 60-80% of children with learning disabilities have undiagnosed vision problems because vision is more than just visual acuity. As therapists, we may be the first to pick up on these deficits. Treatments, strategies, and tools to improve visual deficits will be stressed. This course will arm therapists with intervention tools and strategies to promote independence and improved functioning in both children and adults. Case studies will be used to solidify learning and cement clinical reasoning. A “mock” telehealth session will be provided to show how to incorporate these skills in a virtual setting.

*Participants must attend all 3 days in order to receive ANY IL EI credits!
