Presented by Professor Selwyn Super, O.D., Ph.D., B.Ed., M.Ed., FCOVD, FAAO
Intention - Attention - Inattention - Neglect ”Bringing Out The Best In Behavioral Optometry“
This 15 hr course brings out the best in Behavioral optometry.
A special emphasis will be upon Perception: what it means, sensorimotor integration Exercises, The influence of a Learning Readiness Program on the Perceptual Development of the First Grader, Optometry and Learning, Stereopsis and its Educational Significance, Interdisciplinary Perspectives and Clinical Applications, and Vision and its role in Successful Sensorimotor, Perceptual and Cognitive Development.
The attendee will leave the meeting with an in depth understanding of how important Intention, ”Attention, Inattention, Neglect“ are to the input and output of the visual process.
