April is Cortical Visual Impairment (CVI) Literacy Awareness Month. Literacy looks different for students who are diagnosed with CVI and requires a different approach to learning.
Cortical Visual Impairment is a decreased visual response due to a neurological problem affecting the visual part of the brain. Typically, a child with CVI has a normal eye exam or has an eye condition that cannot account for the abnormal visual behavior.
Our goal is to raise awareness of the needs of children in each phase of CVI and to promote information and strategies to support teachers, families and others who work with these students. We are using the hashtag #CVILiteracyAwarenessMonth to highlight information about this important topic on social media.
