Cortical Visual Impairment

What We Have Found

The CVI Range Assessment has helped guide intervention that:

  • Outlines the conditions for viewing so a student with CVI is supported in learning how to consistently use their vision throughout the day
  • Provides specific strategies to recruit a student’s vision
  • Provides recommendations to effectively engineer educational materials, the classroom environment and instruction to reflect:
    • An individual student’s CVI profile
    • Interventions for groups
  • Supports student participation in areas of communication, academics, mobility and assistive technology
  • Gives non-vision professionals a guideline to develop instruction and materials that enrich typical CVI recommendations
  • Allows students with CVI daily opportunities to utilize their vision, which increases their overall classroom participation

Dr. Roman-Lantzy consulted with the staff as they implemented the assessment and intervention strategies she outlined in her book. She reinforced the staff’s efforts and provided valuable feedback on specific details.
