Visual Processing, Visual Perception and Visual-Motor Skills

Course Description:

This workshop will help the therapist determine when they are able to address visual issues within their setting, (including schools, acute care, rehab and LTC facilities) and when they need to refer for further medical attention. It will arm therapists with intervention tools and strategies to optimize function. It will focus on the visual system and how various diagnoses can present with different visual difficulties in both children and adults. We will discuss how to assess for visual processing and visual deficits as well as determining treatment and/or remediation. Case studies will emphasize clinical problem solving and decision making for visual processing, visual perception and visual-motor skills.

Upon completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:
1. Analyze the visual system and gain the skills needed to assess it, in order to better identify visual issues that students/clients present with.
2. Discuss the visual systems role in sensory processing and how it impacts a student/client functionally across all areas (PT, SLP, Special Education).
3. Identify various visual issues associated with differential diagnosis and provide therapists with strategies to use the next day in their setting.
4. Identify when to treat, remediate or refer for visual issues and how to best share that information with the team.
5. Identify the differences between a visual processing issue and a visual deficits and its functional impact on the client's daily activities.
