Approximately 1 in 4 people have a hidden visual processing deficit that can cause physical symptoms as well as impact learning, memory, and behavior. Healthcare providers and therapists can employ a quick and easy non-normed assessment to determine if a potential processing problem is presenting as an alternate health issue. Because deficits in visual processing skills can mimic the symptoms of many other healthcare concerns it is important to use key client questions to uncover a suspected processing problem. Using an educational screening tool, participants will examine assessments for thirteen skills including eye movement control, eye teaming, focus shifting, auditory-visual integration, and visual memory. Through case study videos students will be challenged to determine if they can spot a problem as the client is assessed. Offline assignments require students to practice what they have learned with a partial assessment of several volunteers or clients, analyze footage of strabismus and amblyopia, and plan for referral to appropriate vision professionals.

Note: This course does not address eyesight or visual acuity. It is assumed students have already taken Course I on Visual Processing and the Brain and can identify symptoms of a problem associated with each of the 13 skills covered in this program.

Suggested Audience: Occupational Therapists, Occupational Therapy Assistants, Vision Therapists, Physical Therapists, and interested others.

Objectives: Participants will be able to:
1. Use an educational assessment tool for several processing skills.
2. Integrate new client questions into their practice, where appropriate.
3. Recognize behaviors and compensation tactics that indicate a problem for each skill.
4. Explain the importance of amblyopia screening for children of all ages.
5. Evaluate referral resources for amblyopia.
