Le rôle de l’ergothérapeute dans l’accompagnement des adolescents et jeunes adultes atteints de déficience visuelle acquise dans la réalisation de leurs loisirs

Abstract : Background: Acquired visual impairment occurs during life and consists in a significant decrease in the visual acuity of one or both eyes. This illness requires to relearn daily life gestures and also influences the access to leisure. The aim of this study was to explore how people with acquired visual impairment access their leisure and how occupational therapists can support them in doing so. Method: Through a qualitive method, two occupational therapists working with a visually impaired population were interviewed, and eleven people with acquired visual impairment were questioned through an online questionnaire. Results: Among visually impaired people who enjoy leisure, almost half were helped by a third party. Some people thought that the occupational therapist could have a role to play in supporting leisure while others thought that it would not be relevant because it would require too many skills from the occupational therapist for him/her to perform his/her job properly. The interviewed occupational therapists, for their part, believed that they have an important role to play in this support. Conclusion: The occupational therapists based their care on the occupational balance of their patients and wished to support them more on this. However, leisure support is not in place yet and has limitations faced by occupational therapists. In addition, there is a request from visually impaired people to allow them access to leisure activities and if possible, with non-disabled people.
