September has been declared CVI Awareness Month! As the leading cause of visual impairment in children in the United States and other developed countries, teachers, therapists, families, medical professionals, and other members of the community have been trying to raise awareness about this condition. While all children are different, we offer many strategies for literacy activities and modifications on this website. In addition, the CVI Hub at Perkins eLearning has links to many useful resources.
Here are some places to get started:
What Is CVI?
- TSBVI Web Exercises
- CVI Videos, Perkins eLearning
- Strategy to See
- CVI Teacher
- Cortical Visual Impairment: Special Topics, West Virginia Department of Education

April is CVI Literacy Awareness month. See these resources that are specific to the needs of students with cortical visual impairment for literacy instruction.
