   Vision Therapy Post-Brain Injury:
Getting to the Root of the Problem

Purpose/Goals:

Vision is an area of occupational and physical therapy for which compensation strategies are often employed. However, functionality and the underlying problem can often be remediated, reducing the need for compensation. In this workshop we will go beyond compensations to discuss comprehensive screening, evaluation, and treatment for brain injury and stroke related deficits for pediatric and adult populations.  Included will be background education, terminology, common deficits, equipment for a limited budget, common vision therapy equipment, and therapy applications that can be used to correct the foundational problems. Clinicians will discuss vision diagnoses and how they impact functioning, as well as evaluation and treatment applications. 

Objectives:

  1. Understand vision diagnoses and the functional impact they play with B/IADLs and movement/gait
  2. Understand how to screen for common brain injury and stroke related vision deficits
  3. Identify shoe box activities for each of the outlined vision diagnoses
  4. Improve knowledge and understanding of commonly used vision therapy equipment and applications for vision therapy treatment
  5. Understand the comprehensive vision therapy process including referrals, goal writing, funding considerations, discharge planning, and coordination of care
 

AGENDA

This vision course will provide instruction,

hands-on learning opportunities, and an extensive packet of exercises

and therapeutic tools.
