Introduction to Cerebral Visual Impairment in Children: Visual Impairment Due to Damage to the Brain

INSTRUCTOR: Amanda Hall Lueck, Ph.D.

Starts on January 16 – March 26, 2017. This is a 5 session class spread over 10 weeks.Visual impairment due to brain damage will be discussed along with assessment of children with this condition. Methods to design appropriate interventions for these children that take into account individual differences, the learning environment, and the need for multidisciplinary teamwork will be presented.


Each participant is encouraged to choose a child that they know well to follow throughout the class for a case study.

The course instructor will pair participants to share feedback on assessments and intervention methods for that child. Participants will apply the information they learn each week to the case that they are working and will also apply this information to feedback to their partner. Participants are not required to have an active caseload to register for this class, but are advised that the coursework will center around these case studies.
