This micro-credential is awarded to individuals who have successfully completed the CVI Complexity online class.
In order to earn this micro-credential, participants will need to demonstrate the following:
- Explain vision to others in a way that will help them better understand CVI.
- Describe the role that the brain plays in constructing our visual experiences, with an emphasis on dorsal and ventral stream functions.
- Explain the ways in which most typical environments and activities have been designed to fall within the abilities of the typical human visual system.
- Describe neuroplasticity and its relationship to CVI.
- Demonstrate an in-depth understanding of the CVI Characteristics (Roman-Lantzy) with emphasis on complexity and its relationship to the other characteristics.
- Describe how the CVI Characteristics (Roman-Lantzy) manifest later on The CVI Range, with emphasis on late Phase II and Phase III.
- Describe relationship and overlap between the approaches and principles described in both the cortical and cerebral visual impairment literature.
- Describe the obstacles that stand in the way of a visually accessible day for a child with CVI.
- Assess a child’s ability to interpret two-dimensional images.
- Identify the salient visual features (Roman-Lantzy) of an object or image.
- Provide direct instruction in salient features and interpretation of two-dimensional materials.
- Identify appropriate educational tasks for the child with CVI.
- Determine appropriate learning environments for a child with CVI.
- Explain the ways in which CVI can affect a child’s behavior and the negative impact of a visually inappropriate school schedule.
- Evaluate the complexity level of a given environment.
- Evaluate the complexity level of a given task.
- Determine the appropriate balance between the complexity level of the task and environment for a given activity.
- Rate the complexity level of a given environment.
- Rate the complexity level of a given task.
- Use the Single Activity or Schedule Recording Forms to share their results with a child’s team.
