Motor Training within Optometric Vision Therapy – OVT5
28th – 30th January 2018
Trainer: Caroline Hurst Venue: Conference Aston, Birmingham
Movement, the visual process and the development of processing and perceptual skills are intrinsically linked in a continuous, cyclical process of making a motor action, processing and understanding the sensory input from that motor action, then with vision modifying the next motor action.
This three-day course will explore the development and learning of gross and fine motor skills together with primitive and postural reflex control of movements, and describe the impact of infantile reflexes upon visual process development. The infantile reflexes will be considered as part of the total visuo-motor development system, and the course will include the descriptions, actions and effects of primitive reflexes together with assessments and therapy activities to provide a methodical approach to testing and therapy activities.
The third day will incorporate information on the testing and therapy for children aged 6 months – 5 years, including new techniques to try to assess reflex responses on wriggly children that won’t stay still, and new OVT activities for child development. This approach to OVT can also be used for some patients with ASD.
.Those people that have already taken the two-day OVT5 course can attend the new third day on Tuesday 30th January subject to availability. If you are interested in this please contact Lorraine to register and places will given on first come first served basis. These places will be released on 2nd January.
Each day will commence at 9.00am and will finish at 5.30pm. BABO points will be awarded.
