Could Mirror Neurons be what Skeffington conceptualized when he said “Vision is Motor”? Is the new field of “Embodied Cognition” helping explain what we do in Vision Therapy?
This Seminar is dynamic and “hands-on.” It provides practical and effective methods for the evaluation and development of cognitive skills. The Model of Vision that permeates this course is: improving visual skills can improve intellectual ability. A review of ‘Models of Vision’ will precede the practical aspect of the course.
Vestibular integration and development will be reviewed as it is woven into broader and deeper aspects of the developing visual system. Visual perception, sensory-motor integration, internal imagery, visualization and cognition are critically analyzed in this seminar. Practical therapeutic methods are offered to help develop perceptual and cognitive skills.
