Lil Deverell / Lisa Petrie

Lisa Petrie is an Habilitation Specialist with Guide Dogs UK, based in Scotland. Lisa enjoys working with children who have complex needs, and she also manages O&M services for adults, children and young people (CYP). Lisa and her teams have been piloting the VROOM and OMO functional assessment tools with all ages. In 2018, we tested out the VROOM and OMO tools assessing the functional vision and mobility skills of two year old boys, Theo and Luke. They both have CVI – cerebral visual impairment – and travel in a manual wheelchair. In this episode, we get an update on these wee bairns, and Lisa’s perspective on the VROOM and OMO tools for children with multiple disabilities.
