Here, you will find a growing source of information to help you better understand Visual Stress and the impact it has on our community. The more people are educated on the condition, the more people will be helped.
Education material will be developed and presented in the form of blogs, newsletters, videos, podcasts and both live virtual and recorded webinars and workshops. When possible, we will resume live training sessions.
Raise awareness of Visual Stress by sharing these resources and providing your feedback. The information is important to health care professionals, educators, employers, patients or anyone who suffers from or works with those who suffer from the symptoms of the condition. As we develop new content over the coming year, we will also be working with healthcare and education colleges to get the courses qualified as Continued Education Credits.
We welcome any ideas you may have to help us build our education and training programs to best meet your needs.
Please contact us with your thoughts.
