Description

Whether your patients’ goals are to return to work, play with their grandkids, or travel the world, your hard work helps them progress toward their functional goals.

But when vision problems distort your patient’s world, it can feel like you’re working twice as much for half the progress. Falls, mobility deficits, isolation, and dependence on others can lead to serious, costly setbacks. And problems performing exercises and activities often result in avoidance over time, severely limiting functional outcomes.

It doesn’t have to be this hard.

Learn the latest vision therapy techniques in this hands-on live webcast, and discover a powerful intervention framework that has helped countless therapists and their patients overcome these exact same issues for years. Whether your patients are adults with head injuries or stroke survivors with visual perception problems, you’ll transform your practice with innovative interventions that help patients adapt to visual impairments, take charge of their recovery, and resume functional activities they might have otherwise abandoned.

Sign up now, and discover new ways to accelerate progress for outcomes that will earn you referrals.
