Abstract

Date Presented 4/9/2016

Continuing education is vital for the development of skills to treat clients with low vision. Lack of time, budget, and reimbursement are limiting factors for occupational therapists (OTs) wanting to pursue continuing education. This study informs OTs of the training needs in assessment and intervention of low vision.
