There are 8 sessions included in this training module that describe the condition of cortical/cerebral visual impairment, its causes and associated medical conditions, and the educational and development impacts of brain-based visual impairment.
Course participants will study the work of leading researchers, educators, and practitioners in the field of brain-based visual impairment, including Dr. Gordon Dutton, Judy Endicott, Dr. Creig Hoyt, Dr. Amanda Lueck, Ellen Mazel, Dr. Nicola McDowell, Dr. Lotfi Merabet, Peg Palmer, Tammy Reisman, Dr. Christine Roman-Lantzy, Diane Sheline, Marguerite Tibaudo, Matt Tietjen and more.

As a result of the learning experiences in the course participants will be able to describe and explain:
- critical differences between ocular and neurological forms of visual impairment
- the role of neuro-visual plasticity in improvements in functional vision for individuals with CVI
- diagnostic criteria used to identify CVI
- the importance of knowing the medical causes of CVI as an important key to diagnosis of CVI
- the function of both the anterior and posterior visual systems
- the function and behaviors associated with dorsal and ventral stream visual processing
- key factors associated with each visual behavior
- educational implications of the visual behaviors associated with CVI
- the rationale for a CVI-specific functional vision assessment
- methods to integrate CVI Evaluation results into the IEP.
- challenges and supports of social learning & interaction for individuals with CVI.
