3 What are the VROOM and OMO tools?

Lil Deverell

This episode introduces VROOM and OMO – two functional assessment tools created by an O&M specialist who loves ridiculous acronyms. VROOM stands for vision-related outcomes in orientation and mobility, and OMO stands for orientation and mobility outcomes. These are constructivist (not objective or subjective) assessment tools designed to co-rate a client’s functional vision and mobility, giving each a score out of 50. We meet Ewa Borkowski from Guide Dogs NSW/ACT, whose team is using the VROOM and OMO tools during ordinary O&M assessment. This includes working from the COVID cave.
