Visual Processing Impairment I - Evaluation and Intervention for Adult Acquired Brain Injury
Visual Processing Impairment I - Evaluation and Intervention for Adult Acquired Brain Injury is organized by Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists (CAOT) / Association canadienne des ergotherapeutes (ACE) and will be held from Jun 12 - 13, 2020 at The Winston Golf Club, Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
Occupational Therapists, Speech and Language Pathologists, Physiotherapists. Although the workshop is specifically designed for therapists who work with adults with acute brain injury, the evaluation and treatment principles are applicable to pediatric and cerebral palsy populations. The workshop is taught from the OT perspective but the information provided is applicable to PTs and SLPs.
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.
• Identify the basic neurological foundations underlying adult acquired visual perceptual dysfunction.
• Correlate deficiencies in visual perceptual processing with changes in performance of daily occupations.
• Identify client behaviours that may indicate deficiencies in visual perceptual processing.
• Select appropriate assessment tools to measure deficiencies in visual perceptual processing.
• Use assessment results to select appropriate treatment interventions.
• Formulate appropriate treatment interventions and progression of treatment to enable the client to use visual perceptual processing to complete daily occupations.
• Document deficiencies in visual perceptual processing and set objective, achievable goals.
• Collaborate with ophthalmologists, optometrists and other rehab professions to maximize the effectiveness of treatment intervention.
