Low vision rehabilitation is rapidly growing as a specialty practice for occupational therapists. This growth requires practical, evidence-based information on the evaluation and treatment of the effects of low vision on occupational performance. Responding to this need, Low Vision Rehabilitation: A Practical Guide for Occupational Therapists blends standards of practice that have been developed from over 50 years by low vision therapists and optometrists, with the latest scientific research from the unique perspective of occupational therapists. Recommended evaluations and interventions are tried and true, thoroughly tested by the authors who practice in settings that are typical for occupational therapists.

In our approach to low vision rehabilitation, the focus is on discovering and then enabling the performance of activities important to each client using "whatever works", visual or non-visual devices and adaptive techniques including the latest electronics, including smartphone and tablet computer technology. We now have a section devoted to occupational performance including ADL's, leisure, mobility, and diabetic management as well as a chapter on neurological impairment including spatial neglect syndrome.

 
Other Topics Discussed will allow you to:
* access a Website with sample documentation forms, patient handouts and ICD-10 and G-codes.

* use the evidence-based "Success Oriented Approach" for managing clients with cognitive disability and depression.

* learn core knowledge required for the ACVREP low vision and AOTA specialty certification in low vision

 
About the Author:
