Title: Visual Processing Impairment I: Evaluation and Intervention for Adult  Acquired Brain Injury
Date: Saturday-Sunday, November 1-2, 8am-4:30pm
Speaker(s): Mary Warren, Ph.D, OTR/L, SCLV, FAOTA
Audience: OT, COTA, PT, PTA, SLP
Location: Jewish Hospital Rudd Heart and Lung Conference Center, Louisville, KY


Course Description:
This intensive workshop provides therapists with the skills to effectively evaluate and
treat visual perceptual dysfunction in adult patients following stroke and head trauma.
The course addresses: visual neglect and inattention, oculomotor dysfunction, visual field
deficits, reduced visual acuity, and disorders of complex visual processing. Participants
are taught how to identify deficiencies in functional performance which are caused by
visual perceptual impairment and design practical interventions which increase
independence in daily occupations. The course emphasizes a functional and practical
approach to evaluation, treatment and documentation of visual perceptual dysfunction.


Educational Objectives: 
• Identify the basic neurological foundations underlying adult acquired visual
        perceptual dysfunction.
• Correlate deficiencies in visual perceptual processing with changes in performance
        of daily occupations.
• Identify client behaviors that may indicate deficiencies in visual perceptual
        processing.
• Select appropriate assessment tools to measure deficiencies in visual perceptual
        processing.
• Use assessment results to select appropriate treatment interventions.
• Formulate appropriate treatment interventions and progression of treatment to
 enable the client to use visual perceptual processing to complete daily occupations.
• Document deficiencies in visual perceptual processing and set objective,
 achievable goals.
• Collaborate with ophthalmologists, optometrists and other rehab professions to
        maximize the effectiveness of treatment intervention.
