This online course is designed to help therapists develop a comprehensive understanding of vision and how vision can impact on the therapy process in children. A three component model of vision will be presented stressing the importance of optical, visual efficiency and visual information processing disorders. A screening battery that allows therapists to test for the most common vision problems in children will be presented. Treatment options will be discussed at length including both compensatory strategies and rehabilitative techniques (vision therapy). A therapy sequence for eye movement and visual processing disorders will be presented. Testing and intervention techniques presented will be applicable to the pediatric, population.
