Visual perception can be a challenging topic on many levels. Knowing what tests to perform, how they are interpreted, what therapy to offer, and how to explain the results to patients and parents are multifaceted challenges to tackle.
This book breaks down each of the topics in an easy-to-follow manner. The authors offer advice garnered over their many years of teaching and practice experience. While it would be impossible to discuss every test in every area of visual perception or visual information processing, they hit the most common ones comprehensively.
The therapy section is a useful complement to the diagnostic section. Understanding visual perception allows you to communicate with professionals working with patients such as occupational therapy and educational specialists, so this book is a must-have.
