LVR Classroom 02Our talented faculty and graduates are continually developing tools to assist and improve clinical practice in low vision rehabilitation. We wanted to share some of these tools with vision rehabilitation professionals to help them provide optimal services to their clients.

The following resources may be freely downloaded and shared with others - we only ask that you adhere to the copyright acknowledgment described for each tool.

REVISED Self-Report Assessment of Functional Visual Performance (R-SRAFVP)

Certificate graduates Cheryl Zemina and Marlene Snow updated and established the psychometrics for a revised version of the SRAFVP as part of their post professional graduate work at UAB.  The resulting R-SRAFVP form more accurately reflects the activities completed by older adults in the digital age.

The R-SRAFVP is freely available to any professional who wishes to use the form and adhere to the copyright requirements.

The R-SRAFVP toolkit contains the following items:

  • A guide to using the form including copyright requirements, how the form was developed, its psychometric properties, instructions for administering the form and calculating a Medicare g-code, and a case example.
  • The R-SRAFVP forms and task descriptions
  • Spreadsheet version of the form that automatically calculates the number of relevant measures, the composite score, the percentage of disability and the g-code levels. Instructions and a client example are included.
  • Educational materials on g-code reporting

Self-Report Assessment of Functional Visual Performance

The SRAFVP is an ADL assessment that focuses on 38 vision-dependent ADL tasks.

The assessment was developed through a collaboration between the occupational therapy departments at the Eye Foundation, University of Missouri-Kansas City, Washington University and the University of Florida. UAB serves as the repository site for the form and the toolkit.

The assessment was developed with a grant from the American Occupational Therapy Foundation and is freely available to any professional who wishes to use the form and adhere to the copyright requirements.

The SRAFVP toolkit contains the following items:

  • A guide to using the form including how it was developed and its psychometric properties, copyright requirements, instructions for administering the form and calculating a Medicare g-code.
  • The SRAFVP form in four different formats
  • Spreadsheet version of the form that automatically calculates the number of relevant measures, the composite score, the percentage of disability and the initial g-code levels.

Age Group Comparisons on the Dynavision

Our graduate students have collected data to establish norms on typical adult performance on the Dynavision for five age groups of typical males and females between the ages of 20 and 70 years. There are 25 males and 25 females in each age group.
