“Creating Success in the Examination and Treatment of Children with Multiple Issues”

Celia Hinrichs, O.D., FCOVD

Creating Success for Children with Multiple Issues

Using a developmental approach this course will give the behavioral/developmental optometrist the opportunity to learn the appropriate history gathering, assessment and treatment of children and adults with multiple issues. By using a developmental approach the behavioral/developmental optometrist is able to adapt many of the forms, techniques and treatment approaches that may be familiar to him/her. Through the use of photos, DVDs of patient assessment and treatment with actual patients from our offices the practitioner will realize the joys and success in working in this population. Many will see that a greater knowledge of these approaches will inform and improve every day practice. Equipment, necessary forms adapted and treatment approaches will be given to the practitioner such that the doctor will be ready to begin to approach this population with the expertise required.
