In this self-paced course, occupational therapists will review visual skills and the impact deficits in these areas have on education. They will consider the role of the OT in evaluating and treatment planning for students with visual skill deficits. Interventions and accommodations will be discussed, and OTs will be asked to apply knowledge gained in this course to their practice through knowledge checks, matching, and reflection activities.
