Course Content:

Research indicates that physical activity (PA) is integral to a person’s health and well-being, yet most individuals do not achieve the recommended daily amounts to garner these benefits. When disability such as vision loss is present, barriers exist that create even greater difficulty participating in PA. This webinar will provide a background of the demographics, statistics and relationship between PA and vision. The presenter will address assessment and intervention of this occupation and provide a discussion of the importance of advocacy efforts to enable participation.
