This April is the first ever CVI Literacy Awareness Month. Literacy looks different for students who have cortical visual impairment (CVI) and requires a different approach.  Our goal is to raise awareness of the needs of children in each phase of CVI and to promote information and strategies to support teachers, families and others who work with these students.  

Here are some places to get started:

What Is CVI?

 

Understanding Literacy and Children with CVI

 

Strategies for Adapting Books and Literacy Materials for Children with CVI

 

Yellow pegboard book
 

Examples of Books and Adaptations for Students in Phases I and II

 

Examples for Students in Phase III
