Perkins School for the Blind CVI Hub web page brings valuable CVI resources right to the fingertips of parents, educators and school districts. The CVI Hub is a great place to start if you’re looking for resources for your CVI journey. Below is our list of the top three resources for parents of children with CVI.
CVI 101 is a great place to start while you are gathering useful information about CVI. With Perkins, you know that the information is accurate and trustworthy. The overview of CVI they give is both understandable and descriptive. As you read on, you are presented with a video by Dr. Christine Roman-Lantzy, where she covers Cortical Visual Impairment and the Evaluation of Functional vision. Next, you will read about the CVI Range, and what role it plays with individuals with CVI. All in all, we believe this is a very useful CVI resource.
Sometimes a video is the best way to package useful tips and techniques. On this page of the Perkins – School for the Blind, you are presented with a wonderful video library full of video presentations. Many topics are covered, including:
- Assessing Complexity for Children with CVI
- Understanding What Children with CVI See
- CVI from a Parent’s Perspective
Lastly, we highly recommend reviewing this highlight of Dr. Christine Roman-Lantzy, who is arguably the leading researcher and thought leader in the field of Cortical Visual Impairment and referenced many times on Perkins School for the Blind CVI Hub. Dr. Roman-Lantzy has been instrumental in building CVi Connect. Her techniques and evaluations influence how CVi Connect is designed – from activities that are presented to Virtual CVI Range Score Assessments.
