Disclaimer: At the outset I’ll emphasize that I have no involvement with or awareness about this product other than seeing it mentioned on the Facebook page of Vision Therapy Parents Unite (which, by the way, has now grown to over 13,000 members). I’m merely relating what you’ll find by visiting the website of Our Visual Brain, created by Janet Powell, the mother of a child who found it difficult to motivate him to do home VT. She writes: “By developing a tool that can be used on almost any operating system from 2008 on, keeping my price point low and developing tools that entertain and well as train, I was able to create a program that is accessible, affordable and most importantly, effective. I am very proud of Our Visual Brain and I hope you and your patients enjoy your time with us.” More background on how this was created:
You’ll note that there are three portals to create an account to purchase online access, one for “Vision Therapy Startup” presumably aimed toward optometric practitioners and therapists, one for “Occupational Therapy Startup” (self-explanatory), and the third for Parents and Caregivers. Parents can not (as yet) purchase online use directly through the source, but are encouraged to collaborate with a doctor through the COVD practitioner locator.
Some technical information about the product as provide on the site. Our Visual Brain works on any PC or Mac system manufactured since 2008. The user does need the latest web browsers, Flash plugins, or operating systems, and it works on tablets and phones. The site notes that small screens, such as phones, may not be effective for all users. Scheduling, checking scores, ordering and communication work from any device with an internet connection and a web browser.
To reiterate this isn’t intended as an endorsement of the product, as I have no experience with it. Process it as information about online options accessible in the pubic domain.
