AOTA Press, 2005 - Medical - 177 pages
Occupational therapy professionals need to understand the visual system because it is vulnerable to many dysfunctional skills, which can impact its effectiveness as an information-processing tool. Treatment of the visual system can lead to improvements in clients' muscle tone; movement; and visua-motor, visual-spatial, visual perceptual, and cognitive functioning. This new edition provides a framework to explore the complexities of the visual system and to further the collaboration of occupational therapists with eye care professionals to increase benefits to clients, because optimizing visual behavior can enhance motor function and quality of life.
