Narrative

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.
