Now available on-demand webinar “Rewiring Vision for Improved Function Through Neuroplasticity”. The power of vision can be utilized in many ways to progress a challenged patient. With dyslexia, strabismus, cortical vision impairment, low vision or blindness, other senses can be stimulated to cross-wire the information through Neuroplasticity. You will learn novel ways to incorporate techniques to promote visual functions. First visual anatomy will be described in such a way as to analyze nervous system deficiencies and visual challenges. Then, strategies will be offered to utilize Neuroplasticity during therapy sessions. Techniques to treat misalignment of eyes with before and after pictures are presented.
Participants will learn to construct treatment steps to increase visual performance and processing in regard to
- sustained gaze, and
- visual tracking
The stimulation of additional sensations with Neuroplasticity techniques may allow relocation of visual function. What to look for when the visual cortex has damage will be discussed with case studies. These simple techniques are easily applied and instructed to caregivers for home programs.
