ELI is a rehabilitative framework that specializes in the field of vision. To give children the best care we can, it is important to us that for every boy and girl there will be a person with experience and knowledge who will coordinate the visual issue and this is the vision instructor. In this way, it consolidates all the treatments that the child receives into one complete program that will allow him to improve his vision function. In addition, turning all the different treatments into one program allows all the different treatments to work together and at the same time. From vision, at the same time during the same treatments contribute to work done directly in the field of vision.
So what does this actually mean?
For example, a child whoIn a dark room Learn to follow an object with his eyes and point at it with his hand, can work on the skill of hand-eye contact even in kindergarten. The teacher can encourage him to point out what he is interested in, by doing so he will also practice the new skill he has acquired as part of his vision practice and his communication ability – he will be able to express himself better. The physiotherapist can teach the child to start moving in the direction of the object he is interested in, thereby improving his mobility. The communication clinician will be able to teach him about the things he is interested in. So, too, with the rest of the professionals. Eventually the child repeatedly practices a skill related to the field of vision and uses it to improve other areas of his life.
The vision instructor is an important partner in building the personal curriculum for each child. Every child who comes to ELI is different and special and we build a personal curriculum that is exactly right for his needs and abilities. This program is updated again and again to make sure that the program grows and continues to develop with the child.
In addition, the vision instructor is in constant contact with the principalElia’s professional and passes on to the teams in the field the latest innovations in the field. It is her responsibility to teach the teams to use these innovations in their daily work with the children.
We have been around for over 40 years, during these years we have accumulated a lot of knowledge and experience, working methods have been developed that our experience proves that they achieve the best results. The vision instructor is responsible for teaching the staff in the field what generations of ALI professionals have tried successfully. Equally important, she is responsible for learning from the teams in the field and from their experience new things and passing them on to the professionals in other branches.
A vision instructor is a key role in our professional set-up.
