Description

Most significant visual impediments are game-changers – if not addressed, no therapeutic intervention will be successful. You will better serve your clients if you understand the mechanics of visual function and how the brain and eyes work together.  Learn how to discern whether what you’re seeing is an effect of a visual impediment, and most importantly, what to do about it.  This training is the first step to becoming a vision-aware clinician: you’ll improve your efficiency and get your clients to where they need to be sooner.
