Specialist Assessments

Guide Dogs NSW/ACT’s Orientation & Mobility (O&M) specialists conduct a variety of assessments to understand the individual needs of people who are blind or vision impaired.

The most common assessment is a functional mobility assessment which is used to understand how a person's vision loss has affected their personal mobility (e.g. getting around the house and travelling in the community).

Other assessments that people can undertake through Guide Dogs NSW/ACT include:
• Assessments for mobility aids
Neurological vision loss assessments
Low vision assessments
• Home assessments
• Individual Access Assessments (for schools and other mainstream sites).
