The Low Vision Centre of Learning welcomes Marianna Newsam (OTR/L) to present all the way from Los Angeles, United States. She is an Occupational Therapist who has spent her career focusing on restoring movement in order to restore function in persons with neurological dysfunction. Early in her career she focused treating individuals within the healthcare system in rehabilitation of adults with stroke and brain injury. She has an extensive medical and neurological background that adds many facets to her treatments. She is currently in private practice with the pediatric population and is the owner and director of MNO therapy. Through her work with children, she sees that vision and movement are closely related. She feels that neurological integration of these systems is the key to child development to enhance elementary school performance and eliminate struggles with learning.
