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.
In this hands-on recording you will learn the latest vision therapy techniques, 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.
Discover new ways to accelerate progress for outcomes that will earn you referrals.

Sandra Stalemo, OTR/L, is an expert in vision therapy with over 37 years of experience guiding patients with vision and neurological impairments toward functional independence in a variety of outpatient and inpatient therapy settings.
Ms. Stalemo developed a passion for vision therapy after witnessing firsthand its impact on her daughter, who had been diagnosed with binocular vision disorder. In the years since then, Ms. Stalemo has trained and worked closely with neuro-optometrists to bridge the gap between diagnosis and treatment in functional settings, and she went on to develop a leading vision rehabilitation program at Sanford Health.
She is now a national speaker on vision and neurological rehabilitation topics, known for her ability to break down complex concepts into practical, everyday solutions.
