Practice Report — JVIB Extract

Since Practice Reports do not have abstracts, we have provided an extract of the beginning of the text.

Extract: Rehabilitation efforts for children with congenital dual sensory impairments, or deaf-blindness, have a long-standing history. Rehabilitation for older people with acquired dual impairments has recently moved to center stage because of the increasing number of clients who require such services (Saunders & Echt, 2007). For both these groups of clients, service delivery follows already established pathways. However, it has been our experience that a third group of rehabilitation clients, namely, those who are affected by slowly progressive and early-onset impairments, often require individually tailored unique interventions that need to remain flexible over long periods. This Practice Report describes one such process in which a client's (and the rehabilitation agency's) rehabilitation goal was to make telephone services accessible in the presence of a progressive sensory-and-motor impairment that was due to Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) syndrome.<
