Identifying Visual Challenges and HOW TO TREAT THEM

How can you properly assess and make functional changes in the vision of a client who has experienced a neurological event, such as CVA or TBI? In six hours, you will explore vision and vision-related deficits that occur after such a tragedy and how to improve function and independence in your clients with the implementation of three crucial steps. First, perfect your evaluation techniques with interactive labs so that you can implement them the next day. Second, you gain new intervention strategies that include compensation and remedial-based treatments that focus on function and return to daily life. Best of all, most of these exceptional strategies will have minimal to no financial impact in the clinic. Lastly, your advocacy and care of these clients will be immensely enhanced by learning the documenting tips and tricks to justify insurance coverage. Walk away with new and ready-made tools – and a new lens – to accurately see and treat your clients.
