O&M Referral Survey

O&Ms, please take this survey - we need more O&M-related data in our field!

Dr. Justin Kaiser and Dr. Tina Herzberg are conducting a research project exploring the process regarding orientation and mobility (O&M) referrals and assessments. This survey is open to teachers of students with visual impairments and also open to O&M specialists who are certified in O&M, such as through the Academy for Certification of Vision Rehabilitation and Education Professionals (ACVREP) or the National Blindness Professional Certification Board (NBPCB). 

In order to participate in this study, you must work in the United States (including US territories) and must have participated in the referral process regarding an O&M assessment for a student, ages birth-21, during the last four academic years (2021-2022, 2020-2021, 2019-2020, and/or 2018-2019). The survey will take 10 to 15 minutes to complete. 

Please complete by April 30th, 2022.
