Visual Information Processing (VIP), Vision and Learning
This weekend covers the foundational elements necessary to evaluate the visual perceptual system of young children and the contribution of visual information processing deficits to the early foundations of reading. The course will cover the neurological and psychological aspects of visual perception, inter-sensory and sensorimotor systems, performance indicators such as laterality and directionality and visual spatial awareness characteristics. The course will also cover optometric perceptual testing to incorporate into one’s examination of these children. Special clinical conditions such as Down’s Syndrome, ADHD, dyslexia and learning disabilities will also be covered. A hands-on workshop will allow participants the opportunity to practice visual perceptual testing as well as implement vision therapy techniques that pertain to the remediation of these deficits.
