Overview

An essential tool for anyone working in the area of low vision, Functional Vision presents a systematic, comprehensive, integrated approach to assessing an individual's functional vision and delivering the appropriate services determined by the assessment results. Based on groundbreaking work by distinguished professionals who have developed the specific principles and procedures for helping people of all ages with low vision,including those with multiple disabilities, the text explains how to link intervention to assessment findings and to teach compensatory skills through everyday activities at school, work, home, and in the community. This detailed and practical guide provides case examples, charts, figures, and sample forms that enable practitioners to apply expert methods in their work with clients.
