RTV supported the DOM initiated programme by implementing and practising the use of strategies for safe navigation of the school environment with the learner using all of his sensory skills. The learning goal for this student is for the development of purposeful and confident movement through a range of different environmental spaces. This is beginning with the area proximal to his class room. From there the skills learnt can be generalised to other environments. As well as RTV input, ongoing support from the other members of the learner’s team is required for the learner to safely use pedestrian crossing.
As well as challenges with peripheral vision, the learner also has a deficiency of rods in his retina, he is visually challenged in low light and in changing levels of illumination.
BLENNZ DOM have also initiated the use of a cane at home for night use.
