In day-to-day practice, we have all seen the positive effects that good vision therapy has on individuals with oculomotor dysfunction, vestibular challenges, visual perceptual delays and visual processing difficulties. Further developing our understanding of how vision skills are learned through the maturation of the nervous system is critical to our success in therapy.
This lecture focuses on the relationship between the developing sensory and motor systems that lead to the emergence of visual motor and visual perceptual functions.
This 3-hour general lecture will emphasize that motor training is an integral part of the vision therapy process.
The neurological connections between sensory and motor systems within the visual system will be discussed and techniques to integrate motor skill training into traditional VT procedures will be demonstrated.
Demonstrations will include combining common VT procedures with primitive reflex integration patterns, bilateral coordination tasks, and vestibular activities to further embed improved visual skills. Participants will learn techniques, activities and exercises to help their patients build skills in oculomotor control, eye teaming and visual perception.
