An 18.5-hour intensive dive into the development and integration of the vestibular and visual systems.
8 PRE-RECORDED Video Lessons + One Live 90 Minute Q&A on June 9, 2023 @ 6 pm Pacific.
This 18.5-hour intensive dive into the development and integration of the vestibular and visual systems offers clinicians the opportunity to understand the impact that their interconnectedness has upon function and intervention. Neuroscience guides clinical reasoning and problem-solving, offering validation with evidence for our treatment selections. Occupational Therapists and Physical Therapists will have the opportunity to bridge theory to practice through lecture, videotape analysis, small group discussions and lab experience through live, online and interactive trainings. Although the goal of this course is primarily to support pediatric rehabilitation, the concepts will be applicable across the lifespan. This is an intermediate-level learning experience, and neurodiversity within a wide range of diagnostic categories will be explored.
This series contains edited recordings of each of the 8 X two-hour sessions that were delivered live in March - April, 2022, led by Kim and supported by her Relationship Matters Team, and will be available to registrants for 120 days upon registration (extensions granted upon request) for continuous on-demand streaming. Handouts and an extensive reference list are also available as part of the course content.
