KOA + KIRCBVI+Rocks #2 !
I've been evaluating children with cortical visual impairment/cerebral visual impairment for some time. Most of the children I see have multiple disabilities along with the visual impairment so my approach is a bit different from those whose specialty in low vision. The bottom line, of course, is to do all you can so your patient can do their very best.
Over the past 2 days I lectured to the folks from the Kansas Instructional Resource Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired and who are associated with the new but awesome KanLovKids program that provides low vision services for children with Pediatric Cortical Visual Impairment and other vision problems. They were an incredible audience. Click here for a copy of my course outline.
