Now You See Me: Visual Rehabilitation in Pediatrics
• Quickly and efficiently identify common visual challenges seen in children.
• Immediately apply evidence-based treatment techniques that can be used in the home, classroom, or clinic for visual neglect, cross dominance, visual perception, and ocular motor rehabilitation.
• Understand the visual system and why kids are "seeing" what they are seeing.
• Recognize the importance of positioning and movement on successful visual function.
Dyslexia: Building New Neuropathways to Master Visual and Auditory Memory, Visual Perception, and Visual Motor Skills Development
• Understand what Dyslexia looks like and how it effects our society and our schools.
• Identify and analyze the different processing areas used in the dyslexic brain when reading.
• Determine what is the complete testing process for Dyslexia and why one test by itself cannot correctly identify Dyslexia.
• Choose a treatment plan and treatment strategies that address the primary challenges seen in dyslexia (reading, spelling, and writing) and the most common secondary challenges seen (visual perception, reflex integration, cross dominance, light sensitivity, and ocular motility).
• Know why synchronization activities are integral for success and recognize the treatment progression for the most effective outcomes.
• Know the treatment progression for the most effective outcome when treating Dyslexia.
