Whether your patients want to go back to work, play with their grandchildren, or tour the world, your hard work helps them get there.
When your patient’s reality is distorted by visual difficulties, it might feel like you’re working twice as hard for half the results. Falls, mobility issues, solitude, and reliance on others can all result in major, costly setbacks. And difficulties with workouts and activities can lead to avoidance over time, severely restricting functional outcomes.
It doesn’t have to be this difficult.
This hands-on DVD will teach you the most recent vision therapy techniques as well as a strong intervention framework that has helped numerous therapists and their patients overcome similar challenges for years. Whether your patients are adults with head injuries or stroke survivors with visual perception issues, you will transform your practice with innovative interventions that will assist patients in adapting to visual impairments, taking charge of their recovery, and resuming functional activities that they may have previously abandoned.
Discover innovative methods for accelerating progress and achieving results that will earn you recommendations.
