This intensive workshop provides therapists with the skills to effectively evaluate and treat visual perceptual dysfunction in adult patients following stroke and head trauma. The course addresses: visual neglect and inattention, oculomotor dysfunction, visual field deficits, reduced visual acuity, and disorders of complex visual processing. Participants are taught how to identify deficiencies in functional performance which are caused by visual perceptual impairment and design practical interventions which increase independence in daily occupations. The course emphasizes a functional and practical approach to evaluation, treatment and documentation of visual perceptual dysfunction.
Mary Warren PhD, OTR/L, SCLV, FAOTA is Associate Professor of Occupational Therapy and Director of the Graduate Certificate in Low Vision Rehabilitation at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB).
