Primitive Reflexes and Sports Vision: Visual Foundations to Peak Performance
This three day, twelve-hour course is designed to provide participants with hands on learning opportunities to explore the relationship between the developing sensory – motor systems and the emergence of visual motor and visual perceptual functions. Primitive reflex assessment techniques, live demonstrations, and video analysis will be used to teach medically accepted assessment methods and effective exercises. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in reflex and sports vision activities aimed at facilitating optimal levels of visual performance.
