The importance of a multidisciplinary approach with low vision children. Personal experience with the 'S. Alessio' Regional Centre in Rome
Bonini P., Bizzi V., Micarelli S., Palombi G.
The ''S. Alessio'' Regional Centre in Rome devotes its activity to the care of blind and low vision children who attend courses for telephone operator or attend the University as boarders in the Centre. Moreover, the Centre carries on an intense activity of advice and rehabilitation for external users who benefit free from the staff and the apparatus of the Centre. The approach with low vision children is multidisciplinary with the assistance of the ophthalmologist, of the orthoptist and of the low vision teacher in children. This specialized «equipe» must take care of the children in early age (it is already late to rehabilitate a 2 year-old child). During the sitting both the parents and the school teacher must be present. In fact it is very important to learn the best way of questioning the children in order to avoid the child's frustration for a too difficult and/or inadequate question.
