Cortical Visual Impairment Online Class

January 17, 2022

This is an online class conducted by Perkins School for the Blind. Participants access course information and resources online, complete assignments and turn them in at the end of each week to receive comments and feedback.

This course will provide an overview of the principles and practices of working with students who have cortical visual impairment (CVI). The course is based on the use of The CVI Range, a functional vision assessment used to determine the degree of affect of the visual and behavioral characteristics associated with CVI. Course participants will be provided information on the use of The CVI Range and will have the opportunity to score a video based CVI Range assessment. The course will also include information pertaining to the causes of CVI and program planning/interventions for individuals with CVI.
