Abstract

Date Presented 3/30/2017

A phenomenological approach was applied to understand the experiences of three participants with traumatic brain injury (TBI) and visual inefficiencies. Five themes resulted: symptoms that complicated life, negative feelings during occupation, changes in coping, personal relationship impact, and lack of resource education.
