6 What do the VROOM and OMO numbers mean?
Jun 26, 2020 Season 1 Episode 6
Lil Deverell

In this episode, Jo Anson-Smith, an orientation and mobility specialist from Newcastle, reports the VROOM and OMO scores for the client she assessed through tele-practice a few weeks ago. Let’s call him Ken. We also revisit Erica Tandori’s VROOM and OMO results from last episode. I explain how we can interpret these results in 10 point categories, with F words for VROOM categories and C words for OMO categories. Jo explains some of her decision-making challenges in using these assessment tools, and we explore the implications of mid-range low vision – the Formwork category – where Ken and Erica see linear structures and outlines, but no internal detail. To cane or not to cane? …that is the question!
