This 6-hr course includes advanced methods for functional evaluation and treatment of vision disability commonly associated with stroke and brain injury. We include advanced techniques for assessing peripheral field loss, spatial neglect, perceptual impairment and first response interventions for eye movement disorders. We cover visual field testing and testing for spatial neglect/ inattention in detail. Our evaluation and interventions can be done with tools available in most clinics. Additional required equipment will cost under $100. Vision therapy and vestibular rehabilitation are not included.
