I am an OT, a Special Ed teacher and a TVI. I became a TVI after realizing that many of the children I work with have CVI and there were no resources locally to address the needs of children and families with CVI. I have taken multiple courses through Perkins, through the Maryland Deaf-Blind Project and I have done some training locally to other professionals on CVI. I presently work in Early Intervention, Pre-school and school age programs. The bulk of my students have significant medical needs and most are home based due to their medical issues. I have been working towards the CVI endorsement for the last few years and am ready to take the last step.
