Cortical Visual Impairment – New Hampshire

DATE: Tuesday, March 20, 2018

INSTRUCTOR: Ellen Mazel, M.Ed., CTVI

LOCATION: Granite State College — 25 Hall Street — Concord, NH 03301

One day workshop in New Hampshire that focuses on cortical visual impairment (CVI): causes, assessment and strategies for access and improvement of vision for students with CVI.

With well thought out assessment using the only available assessment tool, the CVI Range, participants will take a close look at those visual behaviors, to determine function vision within the visual characteristics. After assessment those visual needs will be targeted for necessary environmental adaptations and strategies.

This workshop was made possible from a generous grant from Jane's Trust.

CREDITS:

  • 5.5 PDP's, ACVREP's, Continuing Ed. Hours
  • 0.5 ASHA or AOTA CEUs

Participants will describe the:

  • Critical differences between ocular and cortical forms of visual impairment
  • Role of neuro-visual plasticity in improvements in functional vision for individuals with CVI
  • Diagnostic criteria used to identify CVI
  • Rationale for a CVI-specific functional vision assessment
  • Behaviors associated with Phase I, Phase II, and Phase III CVI
  • Goals of intervention adaptations and strategies for individuals whose CVI Range scores place their level of functional vision in Phase I, Phase II, and Phase III
  • ...and more.
