IF YOUR STUDENT ALSO HAS CVI

The learning process is impacted  by  receiving information from all the senses. However, it is known that approximately "75% of all learning takes place through the sense of vision and that as much as 40% of the brain is devoted to the visual process". (Stewart & Cornel, 2004). 

"Without vision as the coordinating sense, the sensory inputs from touch, sound and the other senses can often be fragmented and dissociated". (Dale & Salt, 2007).

The exciting thing about CVI compared to many other visual impairments is... 

What you do can make a difference!

"Interventions with students who have a CVI usually do have a positive effect and, combined with general growth and development, lead to a progressive improvement in the visual functioning of the majority of students who have a CVI". (Dutton, 2002; Roman-Lantzy, 2005).

The important thing is to plan your interventions according to where the students are on the CVI continuum, to identify what they are able to look at or are interested in looking at, and to give them as many opportunities to look as possible by integrating motivating activities and materials into their daily lives.
