This webinar focusses on audio connections to mobile phones, ipads, computers & using the built in accessibility features that these devices have. It demonstrates various features and shows you how to connect hearing devices to audio devices in order to maximise the functionality of the devices.
This webinar will unpack what is literacy and explore ways that we can support children’s literacy learning by teaching and/or coaching their parents.
This webinar is divided into two parts and runs for two hours. In the webinar we are going to look at the rationale for vision surveillance. We are going to untangle the vision surveillance cycle and through that untangling we will hopefully sort out why we do what we do and when we do it.
This webinar investigates the effect of data driven instruction and how it can be used to improve the spoken language outcomes for children with a hearing loss.
This webinar will focus on the components of an equitable quality education system. The presentation by Dr Frances Gentle will go into depth discussing the class as an ecosystem and look at the following components: student factors, teacher factors, physical setting and curriculum and resource factors.
This webinar explores the concepts, testing and reporting of visual fields when the Bjerrum Tangent Screen and Goldmann Perimeter have been used in assessment. Examples of typical visual field loss are provided, with a comparison between the two test types, to further the viewer’s understanding of visual fields.
This webinar presents a model to explain the complexities of visual function and highlights the similarities and differences between the clinical assessment and the functional assessment of vision. An overview of an approach to functional vision assessment is presented, with suggestions made for maximising the use of vision during assessment and in a person’s everyday life.
This presentation explores near vision, and how it is assessed clinically and functionally. The outcome of this assessment is applied to the low vision situation, with suggestions made for adaptations that minimise the impact of vision impairment on reading and writing.
This webinar explores the concept of visual fields at an introductory level. The common types of clinical assessment of visual fields are explained. The eye and vision conditions that cause visual field loss are also reviewed, with examples of typical visual field loss provided.
This webinar compares and contrasts reporting from clinical vision assessment and functional vision assessment. Two case studies highlight the role both forms of assessment have in building a comprehensive picture of a person’s true visual function.
