Visual Rehabilitation and Traumatic Brain Injury

Visual Rehabilitation and Traumatic Brain Injury 

Visual changes after a brain injury can pose problems that may be misunderstood as cognitive or emotional in nature. OTs working with clients who are recovering from TBI should be prepared to consider the impact of visual irregularities on everyday activities of daily living, and to participate in developing an interdisciplinary plan of care related to neurologically based visual impairments.
