Functional Vision Assessment tool
Many people with learning disabilities may not be able to tell others if they have concerns about their vision.
Our easy to use Functional Vision Assessment (FVA) tool is suitable for use by carers, supporters and learning disability professionals. It can be completed by someone who knows the person with learning disabilities well.
The observations made from the FVA should be shared at someone’s next eye appointment to help the person get the best support.
You may wish to watch our short films to help you carry out the assessment.
