People with autism have difficulty processing and responding to information from their senses, including their most dominant sense-the visual system. Autistic people often use visual information inefficiently and have problems coordinating their central and peripheral (ambient) vision. This can also be true, to a lesser extent, of those who have Sensory Processing Disorder and ADHD. Through hands-on demonstrations you will learn therapeutic techniques to help improve central and peripheral vision coordination for better outcomes in clients with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
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.
Watch this live webcast 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….
When a patient has suffered an injury to the brain, treating the problems that arise is challenging. From dizziness and blurred vision to recurring headaches, your patients are suffering.
You’ve done all the tried and true methods for addressing the vestibular aspects, but your patient is still experiencing issues daily. How often have you felt like you’re missing a piece of the puzzle? Your techniques may be falling short because they only address the vestibular aspects of the concussion – when in fact, the visual system is playing a significant role.
Robert Constantine, OTR/L, will bring 20+ years of clinical experience to the table to help you quickly identify and treat many of the issues that commonly follow mild brain injury:
Headaches.Light sensitivity.Balance problems.Blurred vision.Double Vision
When your patient has vision deficits, even your most tried-and-true therapy protocols can quickly go off the rails, dramatically limiting your effectiveness and halting progress in a variety of frustrating ways:Poor performance of tasks/exercises.Frequent falls.Avoidance of ADLs.Increased functional dependence.Noncompliance with home programs.Reading/communication problems.Limited hand-eye coordination.Gait and posture dysfunction.
