29 Oct Behavioural Optometrist
Belinda Babumba is a Behavioural Optometrist who specialises in Paediatric Optometry and Visual Stress. She works with children and students with a range of visual and learning difficulties, Dyslexia and Dyspraxia. From her work it is evident how these restrictions can affect performance in the classroom and during lectures. Students are often referred to her for Visual analysis from SENCOs, Learning Support Assistants or Occupational Therapists. A visit to her clinic in the UK during school holidays is required for the initial assessment but subsequent Vision Therapy sessions can be carried out via the IPAD App for families that live abroad. This service allows a seamless communication network between teachers, parents, Occupational Therapists and Belinda herself.
