Do you work with children with ADHD, dysgraphia, dyslexia, letter reversals and reading problems that do not respond to typical treatments? Are you frustrated by a lack of progress in children who exhibit poor: • reading skills • handwriting • posture • visual motor integration • ball handling skills • visual processing and visual perceptual skills? Do you know a child that cannot catch a ball and frequently trips? What about the child with autism that studies small objects in the peripheral? Or a low tone child that struggles with handwriting? These problems may be related to an eye movement or near vision focusing difficulties. Attend this workshop and learn to find the root of these problems by learning to assess eye movements and near vision. You will learn evidence-based techniques to improve vision that integrate the visual, vestibular and proprioceptive systems using interventions developed by an occupational therapist that will get results. Thorough video demonstrations and case studies you will learn treatment techniques, including: DIY and high-tech solutions, the Brock String and Hart Chart, prism and lenses, holistic techniques, tools for balance, gait and posture and more! These interventions can be used immediately and effectively in your practice to improve outcomes in your young patients. Master these treatment techniques and increase your confidence in your own practice abilities! Register today!
