Yesterday I received a great email question from one of our area's excellent OTs. Yes, I could have responded to her privately, but her question is one that is probably shared by many OTs and it occured to me that the Sovoto Discussion Forum would be an ideal way to take her question and obtain responses from others in the vision therapy community. I ran the idea past her and she said "great"!
So, here is her question:
How do we (OTs) communicate the need to pediatricians about the differences of vision therapy by a certified provider (OD) vs an optometrist just giving out home exercises and calling it vision therapy?
