Jaimee Perea, OTD, OTR, CLVT, CBIS
Dr. Perea is an occupational therapist at Pate’s Fort Worth location. She is a certified low vision therapist and is a certified brain injury specialist. She further specializes in assessment and treatment of visual and perceptual dysfunction following acquired brain injury. She is an advocate for the role of occupational therapy within the vision-oriented interdisciplinary team which has solidified her interest in peer- and student-education for increased competence within this complex, yet necessary treatment domain. Dr. Perea is active in continuing education provision to local interdisciplinary teams in various subjects related to brain injury and delivers guest lectures focused in her specialty area. She believes that visual dysfunction can negatively impact many meaningful occupations, therefore intervention in this area must be prioritized for safe and successful activity resumption.
Dr. Perea’s research interests are primarily within visual and perceptual dysfunction after acquired brain injury and the emergent use of mHelath apps and technology within treatment and long-term self-management of chronic symptoms. She serves as a member of the Vision Task Force with the American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine to further promote interdisciplinary assessment and intervention.
