This session is a deep dive into the resource Essential Tools for the Trade. We will explore how to use this tool to provide guidance and support to TVIs and COMS when making informed and deliberate decisions regarding the Functional Vision Assessment (FVA). We will also look at guided instruction and how to identify strategies for intervention. In the coming months we will further explore this tool further in two additional sessions. The tool will be provided prior to HELIX to IUs who have TVI and/or COMS registered for this session.
Participants will be able to:
- Identify 6 areas typically assessed in a Functional Vision Evaluation.
- Identify 2-3 practical and beneficial recommendations for specific visual skills when writing a Functional Vision Evaluation.
- List 3 activities that can be used when evaluating near vision.
