Vision, Visual Perception and Visual Motor Skills: Assessment and Intervention Strategies for Children

Education Resources, Inc.

Format(s):   Live Seminars
Discipline(s):   Occupational Therapy / Speech-Language
Contact Hours:   13
Registration Fee:   $435

Participants will be able to:
Define theoretical assumptions and concepts regarding visual, cognitive analysis, and motor skills.
Utilize a variety of assessment tools to evaluate ocular motor, cognitive analysis, visual perceptual and visual motor skills.
Discriminate visual motor tasks in terms of underlying skills, including visual spatial analysis.
Identify, select and describe their own intervention approaches used to facilitate change based on evidence.

Target Audience

Confirmation Notes
Participants are invited to bring a case they would like to discuss. (Assessment materials including raw data and other information will be very helpful. Data should be prepared in such a way that it can be shared in a confidential manner). Participants are also asked to bring several activities, worksheets or websites that you find helpful to share.

This interactive workshop will present a clinical framework to differentiate vision, ocular motor, visual perception, and visual motor skills. In this framework, therapists will be able to use currently available visual perceptual, evidence based interventions to address a child's attentional, visual spatial, and visual motor needs. Visual motor tasks that will be analyzed include: object manipulation, controlled tool use (cut, color, trace), visual spatial (including design copying as in the VMI), and handwriting.
Analysis and discussion of cases will hone clinical reasoning skills and provide intervention strategies, and clinically useful activities. Analyze your own framework about intervention and current use and sequence of activities. The approaches to intervention include Sensory Integration, Learning, and Motor Learning theories (Optometric, COOP and Multi-context).
While this information that will be presented can be applied across a variety of age groups and populations including children with attention deficit learning disabilities, and DCD, the focus of intervention strategies will be on the school age population especially those children with handwriting issues.
