Traumatic injury affects thousands of people of all ages as a result of sports injuries, car accidents, falls, colliding with hard surfaces, and strokes or hemorrhages. The effects can be global and devastating to a person whose cognitive, physical and emotion functioning is drastically impaired  with severe impact on every area of daily functioning. Suddenly the person cannot remember, problem solve, communicate or move in ways once easy and fluid. Chronic headaches and migraines can result. Muscle coordination, weakness, and sensory overload can severely impact tolerance for once easy and comfortable daily functioning.

In this webinar we will explore the neurobiological causes of visual perceptual problems in brain injured adults and children and solutions to remedy them. We will cover reading and handwriting problems, memory, depth perception, anxieties, visual distortions, migraines, driving, coordination, stair climbing, and working at the computer. We will also discuss the emotional and cognitive impairments and their impact on daily living at school, work, community and family relationships.

We will discuss the sensory systems and how to integrate and modulate sensory information using a variety of interventions to create balance and greater levels of functioning. We will discuss Brain Gym exercises, Cranial Sacral Therapy, Irlen Method, and more.
