Winter Session starts on January 30 – March 26, 2017 and runs for 8 weeks. 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.
