Rehabilitation Teaching (Vision Rehabilitation Therapy)

Is the educational process that prepares an individual who is blind or visually impaired at any age to perform daily living skills safely and independently in any environment.

Rehabilitation Teachers or Vision Rehabilitation Therapists instruct persons with vision impairments in the use of compensatory skills and assistive technology to enable them to live safe, productive, and independent lives. Skills evaluation and instruction occurs in the home, assisted living facilities, long term care facilities and on job sites. Specialized teaching services, including some fairly simple devices and techniques, can improve an individual who is legally blind's quality of life. Services are planned and provided on an individual based on the person's needs, interests and aptitudes.
