Low Vision in the 21st Century: Innovation, Ideas and Reinvention

Summary

Industry wide funding changes have meant that non-for-profit organisations have needed to reinvent themselves. This has an impact on the way we conduct business and service our clients into the future. Big ideas or small can have a large impact in this changing and evolving landscape.

New technologies, telehealth and differing approaches to delivery of therapy services are required to survive in this often challenging environment. Projects such as the ROAM (Remote Orientation and Mobility) Project have revolutionised the way we deliver services to those in remote and rural areas. From these humble ideas, innovative approaches to service delivery are formed.

We’d like to share our ideas and innovations to assist you to find the best approach for your clients and their vision journey.
