Concussion Screening Test

The King-Devick  is an eye movement screening test and remediation program for reading.  It is now being utilized as an on-the-field screening test to detect atheltese who may have suffered a concussion.  Studies have shown that the King Devick test is an objective, rapid side-line screening test that can easily be administered by coaches, teachers, parents, trainers and medical professionals.

Rehabilitative vision therapy treatment is successful in improving visual tracking and processing problems that may be present post-concussion.
