Visual Screening and Treatment from Christine Winter-Rundell
Over 80% of how we learn comes in through the visual system. One in ten children has a visual problem interfering with learning. Typical screenings will miss over half of these patients.
Attend this hands-on program and learn the most effective screening tools and history checklists to better identify patients with both visual efficiency and visual processing roadblocks. Learn activities to encourage proper visual development of the tracking, focusing, binocular, and visual processing systems. Being able to identify, and offer therapeutic intervention, will allow for more successful patient outcomes therapeutically, as well as faster academic progress.
