Event description

Description

Seeing and Moving: Visual / Vestibular Course

Join us for a three day discovery of the integration of the vestibular and visual senses in clinical practice. This course will provide a deeper understanding of the neurobiological interaction of these sensory systems and their impact upon movement, learning and regulation. Brain-informed functional intervention strategies will be introduced that promote optimum function by supporting visual vestibular integration.

Target Participants:

This course is designed for pediatric therapists treating a wide variety of children and youth with developmental disabilities and neurological challenges. It is recommended that participants come with a basic knowledge of the vestibular and visual systems. Upon registration, participants will be provided with some suggested readings and videos to complement their current knowledge.

Course Objectives:

  1. The learner will develop an advanced understanding of how the vestibular and visual systems are wired together in the brain.

  2. The learner will develop an understanding of how the vestibular system supports visual function and primes the nervous system for attention, cognition, and movement.

  3. The learner will develop an understanding of how the brain processes visual information perceptually.

  4. The learner will acquire an understanding of the assessment of visual perception.

  5. The learner will develop an understanding of how the visual system modulates and modifies vestibular information in the nervous system.

  6. The learner will acquire an understanding of the difference between saccadic eye movements and voluntary visual tracking skills and oculomotor relationships to function

  7. The learner will develop an understanding of how visual deficits affect movement patterns and learning of new movements.

  8. The learner will develop an understanding of the integrated treatment approach encompassing vision and vestibular synthesis for attention, cognition, emotional regulation and movement.
