CVI Literacy Awareness Month

April is CVI Literacy Awareness Month! Learn about how cortical visual impairment impacts literacy instruction & skill development

April is CVI Literacy Awareness Month. Literacy looks different for students who have cortical/cerebral 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.  We are using the hashtag #CVILiteracyAwarenessMonth to highlight information about this important topic on social media.

Here are some places to get started:
