Attention to the visual processing system and the challenges that impairment places on a student learner are imperative to success for learning, play, and function.

Many symptoms present in plain sight, but others remain harder to detect, often leading to under- or misdiagnosed vision issues, which can exacerbate headaches, inattention, behavior issues, and frustration.

Fortunately, there are simple, strategic tips, tools, and techniques you can incorporate into your practice that will have a profound effect on accurate symptom identification and vision impairment diagnosis and rehabilitation.

In this groundbreaking interactive training, presented through the lens of both a physical therapist and an occupational therapist, you'll learn a multi-disciplinary approach to assessing, diagnosing, and treating vision dysfunction in children and adolescents.
