Texas Education Agency, Austin. Div. of Special Education.
The manual was intended to help school personnel (either an educator of the visually handicapped and/or a certified orientation and mobility instructor) evaluate the functional use of residual vision. The manual is organized in three major sections, which cover the following: (1) the general areas addressed in functional vision evaluation (such as eligibility statement, background data); (2) a checklist identifying items and concepts for possible investigation (including items on medical history and assessment of visual perception, indoor and outdoor visual functioning); and (3) suggested assessment activities to determine the student's visual functioning. Assessment activity information includes a designation of the types of students for whom the activity is particularly useful and suggested materials. The sources for some commercially available testing materials are listed in the appendix. (CL)
