Fredericksburg-based developmental optometrist and vision therapy expert Dr. Tod Davis will conduct a program on childhood occupational therapy for occupational therapists at the Fox Speech Therapy center on November 7th. The program will focus on vision therapy for children as it relates to difficulties with visual cognitive development and vision therapy’s role in the rehabilitation of those in need of occupational therapy.

“I am excited for the opportunity to provide a program on occupational therapy to speech therapy clinicians,” said Dr. Davis. “Developmental issues associated with vision impairment are directly correlated to difficulties with verbal communication. This is a wonderful chance to provide education on this important topic and how we can use it further the developmental progress of our young patients.” Occupational therapy for children is concerned with their ability to participate in everyday activities, such as play.
