Description

Tried all the vestibular interventions, but the patient still complains of being dizzy? Your patient got new glasses but still have problems with spatial awareness?

Failure to recognize functional issues as deficits of visual processing can stall your treatment plans and patient outcomes.

Visual processing skills are integral to daily functional activities, from balance and posture to reading, many of our patient’s complaints are related to acquired issues affecting visual processing. When you address visual processing challenges headon, you can empower your clients to overcome limitations and unlock their true potential. This course was designed for any therapist who is ready to go deeper into the functional aspects of the visual system.

Assessment Made Effortless: Say goodbye to the hassle of outdated and timeconsuming assessment methods.

This toolkit provides you with a wide array of standardized assessments, interactive checklists, and visual screening tools that enable you to identify and evaluate visual processing challenges efficiently. With these resources at your fingertips, you’ll be able to conduct thorough and accurate assessments, allowing for targeted and effective treatment plans.
