Multisensory Model Neurological Implications for Improved Optometric Success and Treatment

COPE approved # 71021-NO and 71022-NO

Instructors: Celia Hinrichs, OD and Randy Schulman OD

We live in a highly sensory world in which we are continually bombarded with information from each of our different senses. Although optometry has attempted to isolate visual skills for diagnosis and treatment, the latest research indicates that we learn more effectively with multisensory integration mechanisms that support intersensory interaction. Now we have the tools to communicate effectively and create true success with all patients.

With a better understanding of the pathways and the different systems engaged, we are more efficient and effective in treatment. By looking at proprioceptive, vestibular, touch, balance, interoceptive, auditory, visual, and cognitive pathways, function, and integration, we can utilize this information in both the examination and in treatment. The clinician utilizes a multisensory approach as part of the examination, decision -aking process, and in treatment, approaches to optimize a patient’s potential, attention and automaticity.

In this course, we will demonstrate the impact of a multisensory approach with a better understanding of the neurological underpinnings. We have developed a checklist to allow the optometrist to use this information in the examination and treatment. Techniques in the evaluation, vision therapy procedures and cases will be reviewed so that the optometrist can implement this information immediately.
