Visual Field Deficits and Neglect: Impact on Daily Performance


Do you feel confident in your abilities to quickly find visual field deficits (VFD) or neglect in your clients with brain injuries? Do you encounter this frequently and want to become more skilled in understanding the nuances of homonymous hemianopsias (HH), especially in clients with a range of complexity
levels and comorbidities, or do you just need a few more tools in your belt to add variety to your intervention activities? This webinar combines low-vision techniques with neurological rehab approaches to deepen your understanding and expand your skill set for treating these exceedingly common impairments.

This intermediate-level webinar gives practitioners a review of current research, a variety of simple and low-cost evidence-based outcome measures, and quick and easy intervention activities for clients with a variety of complexity levels, focusing on improvement in daily activity. This webinar is brought to you by occupational therapists with a combined total of more than 50 years of experience working with clients with a variety of vision impairments across the rehab care continuum. Join us after the presentation for a Q&A session with one of the instructors to get your questions answered.
