Description of Resources for Adapting Low Vision Training Materials for the Adult with Low Literacy Skills

Adults with low vision who seek clinical low vision services need to be able to read (that is, to interpret or understand words, numbers, and symbols in print meaningfully). Reading difficulties that adults encounter during low vision therapy may be directly connected to a visual impairment or may be related to other reading problems, such as lifelong learning disabilities, literacy deficiencies, or cognitive loss. Visual problems experienced by readers with low vision who have central vision loss may be similar to those of a person with low literacy ability (Freeman & Jose, 1991). These problems include the inability to see all the words, skipping words or lines of print, and frustration.
