CVI for the TVI & Other Professionals

Perkins eLearning offers a free monthly forum for collaboration and discussion on CVI in a series called CVI for the TVI.

With CVI as the leading cause of visual impairment in school-aged children in the U.S., we believe that TVI’s and other professionals would benefit from a having a regular, educational forum to discuss the challenges of meeting the needs of this population.

In response, we are pleased to offer a monthly web-based “meeting” via Zoom which is open to professionals who have signed up to participate.  It is a closed meeting – open to members only.  If you are interested in becoming a member, please join the mailing list.

Perkins School for the Blind (Mary Zatta and Ellen Mazel), Yvonne Locke and Peg Palmer (TVI’s in Connecticut) have developed this concept patterned after a similar “meeting” held by parents on a weekly basis. It seemed important to provide a venue for professionals to come together as well.

What Will the Content Be?

Each “meeting” will have a specific topic led by a professional who has demonstrated leadership in CVI.  Topics have been selected based on the survey responses received.  Participants will have access to the presenters powerpoint as well as other documents, videos, etc. There will be no charge for participating.

How Can I Participate?

Each month you will receive an invitation with the information about the topic, date, time, and URL for the “meeting”.  The “meetings” will be recorded and available on our website for those who are unable to attend.  “Meeting” times and days will be varied so as to reach as many professionals as possible.
