NEW - OEP VT1 for Visual Dysfunctions 2018 Sold out!
Wed September 5th, 2018 - Sun September 9th, 2018
Where: Gold Coast, QLD
VT1 teaches a core curriculum of therapy which consists of a series of procedures, which are not necessarily specific to any one dysfunction but which together lead to successful, happy and enthusiastic patients. This course is great way to properly prepare you for providing clinic based vision therapy.
Vision Therapy 1 is:
- Hands On: Individual procedures will be demonstrated and explained in depth. Your instructor will act as a therapist. Participants will become “patients” during the demonstrations. The instructor will demonstrate fully how to modify the procedures by changing the loading to adjust the demand levels to precisely the level needed to achieve maximum development.
- Core Techniques: AN Dissociated and Associated Pointing, AP Rule, Balance Board, Brock String, Cheiroscopic Tracings, Coin Circles, Central-Peripheral Saccades, "Ninja Training", Eye Control, Keystone Fusion Games, Lightboard, Motor Equivalence, Overlapping pictures, Tachistoscope, Vectograms, VO Stars, Walking Rail, and Wallach Rings to name just a few.
- Management and Administrative Techniques: Our instructors will share their over 100 years experience in running a co-management practice and provide you with the basics to get you started.
- Case presentation.
Each participant receives a complete manual of all VT procedures, homework sheets, procedure grids, explanations and all materials to get you up and running immediately. After the course, the instructors are available for advice relating to case management and VT techniques.
The VT/Visual Dysfunction course is a prerequisite for the VT/Learning Related Visual Problems and the VT/Strabismus & Amblyopia courses. This is usually the first course taken by vision therapists.
The OEP Clinical Curriculum faculty has been very successful at making the new therapist comfortable with being in the same class as more experienced therapists, as well as with optometrists who are new to behavioural vision care. For a therapist to attend a course, the normal procedure is that they may either attend the course with their optometrist or the optometrist must have attended an OEP Clinical Curriculum course at a prior date.
Please register for this event before booking airfares & accommodation! ACBO events have limited capacity that cannot be exceeded. ACBO will not be responsible if an event sells out and you have already booked non-refundable airfares or accommodation.
