Session Detail

TSBVI Coffee Hour: CVI Scotland, Optimizing Support for Children with CVI, Part 2 CVI Clusters
Hosted via Zoom on April 26, 2021

Please note, this talk follows on from Part 1 which can be viewed here:

In Part 1, the visual processes and some of the CVIs children are commonly affected by were introduced. In this talk we will look at some combinations of CVIs commonly found in children, and what they look like in terms of the child's behaviours and difficulties. We call these combinations CVI Clusters. CVI Clusters can affect a child's social skills, behaviour, learning and all aspects of development. A difficulty a child may have, like recognising someone, can have many different causes, and we will show this, and suggest some strategies for targeted support. We will also provide an update from recently published research looking at how many children have CVI, particularly where it is not diagnosed. Pre-study is not required, but reading the few short pages in the section called The CVI Puzzle will enhance the understanding of the session.

The hour will comprise a presentation with images from Helen St Clair Tracy, followed by an extended session of open questions for Professor Gordon Dutton.

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.
