Mobile for Students with CVI

This mobile is designed for students with CVI (Cortical Visual Impairment) to increase visual attention and exploration.

I made this mobile for one of my students who has a diagnosis of Cortical Visual Impairment (CVI) and other significant disabilities.  Much like the “sensory space” that I posted here, the mobile was intended to encourage independent exploration, looking, and reaching out in hopes of one day grabbing.  I also wanted my student to have access to it while in his wheelchair or while laying on the therapy table.
