Jeffrey Becker, O.D., a part-time instructor in the Misericordia University occupational therapy program, and Robert Bohlander, Ph.D., a neuropsychologist, have developed the Oculomotor Therapy Program for the iPad to use in their private practice at the NeuroSensory Center of Eastern Pennsylvania in Kingston. The program uses a web-based application in which patients access a variety of games for the iPad that will treat visual system dysfunction and strengthen visual skills. Children and adults with visual impairment due to autism, brain injury, stroke or a variety of other conditions can receive help from this new program that utilizes specially designed games and activities on the computer tablet. Oculomotor Therapy games are designed so doctors can monitor patients progress in real time and change the parameters of the therapy, such as stimulus, speed and frequency. Each time a patient uses the program, the prescribing doctor can track progress online and immediately adjust the prescribed game activities to match patient goals. For more information about the program, contact the NeuroSensory Center of Eastern Pennsylvania at info@keystonensc.com or by calling 763-0054.
