Course Description:

Feeling lost in determining a treatment plan with a neurological client? Have you asked yourself:

  • What is the best evidence-based therapy protocol?
  • How do you know if you are facing a field loss or a neglect?
  • How do you determine visual function when your client is confused?
  • Is this a vision or cognitive impairment?
Michelle has been in that fog and come out the other side with wonderful, functional, and cost-conscience options to show and share. She sustains that therapy should be specific to the client’s challenge and that requires an astute awareness of the impairment. This insight comes from clear assessments that are revealed in this course, along with functional treatment interventions to ensure successful therapy sessions. Michelle shares anecdotes and case studies that highlight how the protocols can be put in to practice. These stories assist in enlightening the inexperienced therapist and commiserating with the experienced therapist. The course content is largely interactive and offers numerous lab sessions proving the engaging experience that therapists crave!
Objectives:

  1. Articulate an understanding of vision-based rehabilitation and the rehabilitation process.
  2. Articulate the description of ocular motor skill impairment, visual field loss, visual spatial inattention and midline syndrome.
  3. Demonstrate competent assessment of ocular motor skills, visual field loss, visual spatial inattention and midline syndrome.
  4. Discuss the difference between field impairment and neglect.
  5. Prescribe treatment interventions for ocular motor skills, visual field loss, visual spatial inattention and midline syndrome.
  6. Demonstrate effective documentation of assessment and intervention to justify skilled services.
