Course Description

Prerequisite: VT/Visual Dysfunctions (VT-1) VT/Learning Related Visual Problems adds to the core VT/Visual Dysfunctions (VT I) course all the necessary testing and therapy activities to successfully diagnose and treat patients with learning related visual problems as well as patients with developmental difficulties. Many of the patients for whom this curriculum is recommended have been labeled dyslexics or “LD/ADD” (learning disability/attention deficit disorder). You will be taught precisely how to determine if a person’s reading difficulty requires the VT II curriculum or if their learning related visual problem can best be served by the simple application of the appropriate plus lens for near, as well as possibly only needing the more basic VT I program. The tests taught have been selected to help you get the most information in the least amount of time. The tests also give you the data necessary to demonstrate to the patient the need and benefits to be derived from the VT II program. Of the entire group of courses this is the most fun and will enable you to work with large portions of the population which traditional optometry has been unable to help in any way.
