Course Description

What we see and hear impacts how we interact with the world around us. Our clients can experience a range of changes in hearing and vision that ultimately may impact safety and engagement in driving and community mobility. 

In this course, explore strategies for screening hearing and listening. Learn techniques for screening visual acuity, depth perception, ocular range of motion, and convergences. Gain insider tips for assessing visual fields through quadrant vision testing and confrontational testing. Understand the value of contrast sensitivity for the driving environment and begin to explore the impact of vision on visual perceptual skills, scanning, and visual processing. Participants will learn how to administer screening tests and measures, benefit from demonstration videos, apply their learning to case studies and activities, and connect the impact of visual performance skills to the task of driving. 

This is course is ideal for the occupational therapy practitioner addressing driving in the clinic. This course is also a great foundation for those OT's advancing into driver rehabilitation. Take this course as part of the In the Clinic: Building Blocks Curriculum Bundle or on it’s on. This course is taught by occupational therapy practitioners, with advanced training and experience in the field of driver rehabilitation.
