Sunday, Monday & Tuesday 15th-17th October 2017
At Hatfield Oak Hotel, Roehyde Way, Hatfield, AL10 9AF
For optometrists and therapists who have attended the OVT1A&B and OVT2 courses
Lead Speaker: Owen Leigh BSc, FCOptom, FBABO
This course is ideally suited to any practitioner with an interest in learning difficulties and who has some experience of behavioural optometry. The lead speaker, Owen Leigh, has enormous experience in this field and his practice in Hampshire has an international reputation for its work.
Prior attendance at OVT1 and OVT2 courses is essential, and attendance for all three days of this course is mandatory. This course is accredited for 18 GOC points, and the course will attract BABO points.
The course will be a mix of didactic content, covering the basic theories of learning difficulties, the impact of visual problems on learning, and testing with vision therapy and practice management. It has been re-formatted to fit in with the guidelines for CET points. This makes it ideal for those who have taken OVT3 in the past to revisit the topics covered.
Comprehensive course notes and a pen drive with additional information will be provided within the course fee. The fee includes a copy of the text book ‘Optometric Management of learning related vision disorders’ by Scheiman and Rouse (List price £75). This book is an essential text for the course and will be a valuable resource for future learning.
The course will be interactive and because of this numbers will be limited. The course fee is £745 for BABO members and £845 for non-members inclusive of lunch and tea / coffee. For those taking the course for the second time and vision therapists the fee will be £525. Accommodation can be booked directly with the hotel on 01707 275701.
Each day will commence at 9.00am and finish at 5.30pm.
