Description:  Theory and Methods of Vision Therapy II
Visual information processing, particularly as it relates to academic performance is an integral part of optometric vision therapy.  After one has assured that proper ocular motor, binocular and accommodative function has been developed or rehabilitated; higher level cognitive and perceptual skills are needed.  There are principles to be followed in the development of perception.  These principles follow the laws of human development beginning with basic sensory motor function and are elaborated through time. When deficits are found in the visual information processing realm, specific vision therapy procedures are prescribed and implemented.  Not only are problems found in the developing and developed child but information processing is also integral to the treatment of acquired brain injury such as stroke and trauma. This course specifically describes and demonstrates in a workshop mode, numerous procedures to alleviate information processing deficits. This course is advanced and makes the assumption that the optometric team has the prerequisite skills in identifying the deficits of perception and cognition.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Each participant will have an understanding of the pervasiveness of the visual system in visual information processing.

  2. Each participant will have a conceptual framework that can be applied to a wide range of optometric vision information processing conditions.

  3. Each participant will be able to have a working understanding of each of the procedures covered in the course.

  4. Each participant will be able to make rational decisions when to move from one procedure to a more complex procedure.

  5. Each participant will have a conceptual knowledge as to how the attentional factors impact information processing and more specifically academic performance.
