TSBVI Coffee Hour: Screening and Assessment for Birth to 3
Hosted via Zoom on December 10th, 2020

Vision screening is unusually challenging because of the pandemic. As we are not able to meet in person with families, Colorado is now using telehealth capabilities and an updated vision screening protocol to determine if there is a vision concern that requires further examination by a pediatric eye doctor and an EI-TVI. Our call to action in Colorado is because far too many very young children with visual impairments are not being identified or supported with vision services. While caseloads are dropping across all early intervention programs, the families of children with blindness and visual impairments still need support from vision professionals. This training will share with you the protocol that Early Intervention Colorado is using to address this problem. You will learn about the new “Vision Screening Parent Questionnaire (Birth to Age Five)” developed by the Colorado Department of Education and the companion piece, “Scoring Guidance," from A Shared Vision. You will also learn how more than 500 EI professionals in Colorado are now using this protocol to identify families that need vision services.

Captioning will be provided, if you need anything else, please email Kaycee Bennett. Some logistics will be different with our Coffee Hours, as compared to the past, but you can expect the same commitment to providing information, discussion, and collaboration on topics important to students who are blind, visually impaired, or Deafblind.
