Course Reviews

Dr. Scheiman's course is very informative. He is very passionate teaching vision therapy. He effectively ties in and advocates the importance of OT/PT getting involved being a primary source for vision therapy. A real "eye opener".

Matthew St. Laurent, Walter Reed Hospital

The workshop provided thorough and realistic information and tools for real-life, clinical practice. I feel I can implement the visual screen tomorrow as a result of the hands-on teaching approach.

Kristin Perilli, OTR

The presenter has a great balance between beings erious while delivering the important information and adding in humorous moments to keep the audience engaged.
