What drives visual targeting?

Learn about the neurological and functional links between vestibular sense and visual function in an easy review of relevant neurology.

Approx 2 hours: This comprehensive review...

... will open your eyes to the interplay between visual and vestibular function.

Start with an overview of where cognitive skills come from, and how to deconstruct 'the problem' from a practical perspective. 

Part 1: Fundamentals is a sit-back and listen / watch lecture on relevant neurology that then leads you into a discussion on how to start to diagnose causes of the behaviours you'd like to address. The emphasis is always on you, the OT: How can YOU use this information?

Part 1 will set you up to better understand the foundations so you can get more out of the practical applications in Part 2: Clinical Applications. Part 1 offers 1.5 CEU's. Part 2 offer 3 CEU's.

Neurology and anatomy review.

All the critical parts, and a fun foray into additional ideas like 'where is the centre of consciousness?'. Start at the foundation, then see how this applies to clinical practice.

I've created this short course primarily for Occupational Therapists because OT's are the Developmental Optometrist's best partner for addressing the great need for visual rehabilitation. The vestibular link to vision is absolutely critical, so these two courses, Part 1 and Part 2, will lay out the fundamentals of what is it we're talking about, and how to start addressing things in clinic.
