This seminar is designed to help therapists develop a comprehensive understanding of vision and how vision can impact the therapy process in children. A three-component model of vision will be reviewed stressing the importance of optical, visual efficiency and visual information processing disorders. Screening procedures that allow therapists to test for the most common vision problems will be presented. Treatment options will be discussed at length including both compensatory strategies and rehabilitative techniques (vision therapy). Case studies will be used throughout the presentation.
DAY ONE is designed to provide information about the most common vision problems present in the pediatric population. Screening tests appropriate for all functional levels will be presented.
DAY TWO is designed to provide details about managing vision problems in children.
