Description

When your patient has vision deficits, even your most tried-and-true therapy protocols can quickly go off the rails, dramatically limiting your effectiveness and halting progress in a variety of frustrating ways:

  • Poor performance of tasks/exercises
  • Frequent falls
  • Avoidance of ADLs
  • Increased functional dependence
  • Noncompliance with home programs
  • Reading/communication problems
  • Limited hand-eye coordination
  • Gait and posture dysfunction

Here’s the good news. Vision deficits don’t have to limit you or your patients ever again. You’ll learn a powerful framework for vision rehabilitation that has helped countless therapists and their patients overcome these challenges.

Whether your patients are adults with diabetic retinopathy or stroke survivors with vision perception problems, you’ll transform your practice with innovative interventions that accelerate progress for outcomes that will earn you referrals.
