Learning Objectives Attendees Should Achieve:


  1. Discuss visual impairments resulting from neurological etiology.
  2. Identify key visual skills to assess.
  3. Understand the importance of occupation as a part of intervention. 

Summary of Event: 

A significant part of the human brain is involved in seeing and interpreting the world around us. Damage to the visual system can significantly limit safety, quality of life and progression in therapy. As OT practitioners we have the skills to observe for, screen, assess and treat visual impairments that limit one’s engagement in occupation. This course will include both didactic and hands-on learning experiences surrounding visual screening, assessment and intervention.
