Diagnosis & Treatment of Learning Related Vision Problems

The workshop offers valuable information for parents, caregivers, teachers, school counselors, students and young adults. If you are involved in the education process, this workshop is for you!

Vision accounts for as much as 80% of the learning process for a student. When vision problems have an adverse effect on learning, they are referred to as learning related vision problems. Undetected and untreated problems can hinder with the ability to perform to one’s full learning potential. Poor visual skills, by interfering with the process, can impede remedial efforts. Learning related vision problems are treatable and the proper vision care can help. Optometrists function as members of a multidisciplinary team of health care practitioners and education professionals in the comprehensive care of individuals with learning problems.

This presentation details the visual skills necessary to perform up to potential in the classroom. These visual skills include eye tracking, eye focusing, eye teaming, visual information processing, visual-motor integration and auditory-visual integration. The assessment and diagnosis of learning related vision problems will be presented, as well as Vision Therapy as a treatment option. Individual school accommodations and suggestions for the classroom will be explored.

Agenda
The assessment, diagnosis and treatment of learning related vision problems will be the focus of this workshop.
