Over the past 40 years, the genetic predisposition to visual problems has not changed. However, due to society’s sedentary lifestyle, unregulated TV viewing, excessive video game play, and poor computer habits, more and more children are demonstrating visual challenges at home, at school, and at play.
This recording is designed to help professionals understand common visual problems in children (0-21 years old), what children are “seeing,” why they are seeing it, and how to fix these visual challenges. Combining research-based lecture and interactive labs, this course provides attendees the proper tools to identify and treat visual neglect, cross dominance, eye teaming, visual processing, and scotopic sensitivity. Correcting these issues ultimately improves the child’s quality of life, as reading, handwriting, and playing are enhanced.
Grounded in evidence-based information, this recording offers comprehensive coverage of established techniques that can be implemented immediately and effectively in therapy, at home, and in the classroom.
