2007 Information Processing Dysfunction Applied Concept Course by Carl Hillier on DigiVision :: 2 Full Days
Many optometrists feel uncomfortable diagnosing reading and/or learning related vision problems and are unsure of what to do about them. This course will lay out a point-by-point method of how to evaluate what a person’s strengths and weaknesses are in the area of visual information processing/visual perception. The course will also show how to determine individuals’ cognitive styles and what learning strategies they use in their everyday world. Once these factors are determined, it is possible to predict whether vision therapy may be necessary and how much improvement can be expected. Specific therapy procedures will be presented with hands-on presentation, along with suggestions on how to modify existing therapy programs and activities. Modifications for different ages and how therapy can be best sequenced for the patient will also be presented.
Equally important is effective communication with the patient, parents, and other professionals/referral sources. This information will be introduced throughout the program where it is most appropriate. Suggestions for managing therapy within a fullscope practice will also be provided.
