Abstract

The special section in this issue advances research for occupational therapy interventions for people with low vision. Three systematic reviews provide evidence for occupational therapy interventions in the areas of activities of daily living, instrumental activities of daily living, leisure and social participation, and reading. In addition, the special section addresses oculomotor treatment in traumatic brain injury, normative data for the Dynavision, and properties of a ScanCourse.
