Abstract

Today many occupations are done using technology. This not only provides opportunities for continued occupational engagement for many but can also hinder participation for those with low vision. This article reviews the literature on digital literacy for individuals with low vision and found that it is in its infancy. Currently, occupational therapy practice is informed by core principles, relies on education research on students with low vision, and the basic low-vision principles related to occupational performance. This article assembles practical recommendations to enable occupational therapy practitioners to advance in this area and build a body of evidence. This article also provides recommendations for the interdisciplinary team to support digital literacy for patients with low vision.
