Does OT treatment of visual skills improve functional outcomes for children with visual-perceptual/ visual-motor impairments?
vision therapy vt
Vision therapy (VT)
  • Well supported by research
  • Role of behavioral optometrist
  • Role of occupational therapy
  • Collaboration
  • Outcomes
evidence
Evidence
  • VT for oculomotor, accommodative, and binocular system disorders
evidence1
Evidence
  • VT for oculomotor, accommodative, and binocular system disorders
  • VT for visual-motor integration
evidence2
Evidence
  • VT for oculomotor, accommodative, and binocular system disorders
  • VT for visual-motor integration
  • OT/ OD collaboration in treating patients
implications for consumers
Implications for Consumers

Occupational Therapy

  • Screen vision
  • Refer vision issues
  • Vision therapy under supervision of OD
implications for consumers1
Implications for Consumers

Optometry

  • Refer handwriting, play skills, gross/fine motor coordination, psychosocial development, or sensory motor/sensory integration issues
implications for ot practitioners
Implications for OT Practitioners
  • Educate ophthalmologists and optometrists about how OT can enhance outcomes
implications for ot practitioners1
Implications for OT Practitioners
  • Educate ophthalmologists and optometrists about how OT can enhance outcomes
    • Work: reading, handwriting, drawing, cutting, etc

Implications for OT Practitioners
  • Educate ophthalmologists and optometrists about how OT can enhance outcomes
    • Work: reading, handwriting, drawing, cutting, etc
    • Play: puzzles, drawing, sports,

Implications for OT Practitioners
  • Educate ophthalmologists and optometrists about how OT can enhance outcomes
    • Work: reading, handwriting, drawing, cutting, etc
    • Play: puzzles, drawing, sports,
    • Self-care: reduced frustration leading to more appropriate behavior
implications for ot practitioners4
Implications for OT Practitioners
  • Share observations about the child’s vision during functional tasks
implications for ot practitioners5
Implications for OT Practitioners
  • Share observations about the child’s vision during functional tasks
  • Encourage compliance with VT and glasses
implications for researchers
Implications for Researchers
  • Outcome studies investigating collaboration efforts are needed
implications for researchers1
Implications for Researchers
  • Outcome studies investigating collaboration efforts are needed
  • More rigorous studies of VT for visual motor integration
