The Link Between Vision and Motor Skills Development
WEBINAR – Presented by Cathy Webb, physiotherapist
Vision and motor skills typically evolve together, and processing of visual information is paramount in executing and controlling hand and body movements. This webinar covers types of vision impairment and how they affect development and will provide practical strategies for therapists working with children with low vision or blindness.
Cathy is experienced in running early learning groups to promote infant development, particularly motor development in children with vision impairment. She has worked extensively with children with Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, vision impairment, Global Developmental Delay, plus neurological and genetic conditions. She is passionate about supporting families and children to work towards their goals using play based activities which fit into their daily routines and enjoys seeing children develop a sense of achievement and positive self esteem as they learn new skills.
