3 Saturdays – Blended Workshop with Ellen Mazel. The first workshop begins on January 21, followed by January 28 and February 4, 2017 (snow date — February 11, 2017). This course focuses on Cortical Visual Impairment (CVI): causes, assessment and strategies for access and improvement of vision for students with CVI. Current theories will be explored. Participants will come to understand the unique visual behaviors and learning needs of children with CVI.
With well thought out assessment, the CVI Range, participants will take a close look at those visual behaviors, to determine function vision within the visual characteristics. After assessment those visual needs will be targeted for necessary environmental adaptations and strategies.
This workshop is part of a CVI Series.
