Description of O&M for Independent Living

The impact of aging on mobility can be profound, and it can affect nearly every aspect of a person’s life. O&M for Independent Living: Teaching Orientation and Mobility to Older Adults is an important guide for orientation and mobility instructions, rehabilitation specialists, occupational therapists, and other professionals who work with adults who may be new to vision loss. It provides insights essential for helping these individuals remain independent and self-reliant. In addition to information on the effects of aging and considerations for assessment and instruction, chapters include strategies on adapting O&M skills for older adults, environmental modifications and appropriate equipment, exercise and its relationship to mobility, daily living skills, and effective collaboration among the professionals who serve this population.
