If you work as a RAS or ACAT assessor, this session will support you to complete the Home Support/comprehensive Assessment and to better understand the supports available for vision-impaired clients. During the webinar you will learn about:
• Common eye conditions and their impact on vision
• Impacts of vision loss on daily living activities

• Selecting the relevant service types when referring vision-impaired clients for appropriate services.
