Christine Winter-Rundell – Vision Processing & Therapy: Collaborative Approaches for Individuals with Sensory Processing Disorders, ADHD, Autism, Traumatic Brain Injury & Other Special Populations
- Christine Winter-Rundell
- Full Day
- Audio and Video
- Apr 27, 2016
- Eye tracking exercises for reading and gross motor development
- Screening tools for developmental and acquired vision disorders
- Clinical tools for improving visual performance
- Therapeutic interventions incorporating vision
In this seminar you will learn how to recognize and understand the specifics of how vision processing relates to disorders you treat in clinical practice daily, such as: sensory processing disorders, autism, ADHD, and traumatic brain injury.
You will learn:
- the steps necessary to adequately screen for potential vision deficits
- to identify various visual disorders
- to educate your patients and their parents on how vision can impact learning, behavior and function
- to collaborate on effective treatments and therapeutic visual interventions direct treatment strategies and home programming ideas
Explore and experience the various methods used for enhancing and strengthening abnormal visual skills. Learn new methods for effectively screening for common visual disorders and walk away with the clinical tools to help you expand your scope of knowledge and improve patient outcomes.

Christine Winter-Rundell, OD, FCOVD, FAAO, is a Fellow of the American Academy of Optometry and a Fellow of the College of Optometrists in Vision Development (COVD). Her interests lie in primary eye care for children of all ages, with a special focus on children with vision-related learning disorders or any patients who have had a brain injury. She enjoys co-managing patients with other professionals and frequently works closely with occupational, physical, and speech therapists, psychologists, and pediatricians. Dr. Winter-Rundell graduated with honors with a degree in Biology and minor in Psychology from the University of Iowa in 2000. She attended Southern College of Optometry in Memphis, TN for her Doctor of Optometry education, followed by a Residency at Nova Southeastern College of Optometry in the area Primary Eye Care with emphasis in Pediatrics. In 2005 she joined The Children’s Eye Center at Cedar Rapids Eye Care. Dr. Winter has been very active in optometric service missions to five different countries in Latin America where her Spanish language fluency was advantageous, and looks forward to sharing that experience with her children.
