CVI and Dual Media Literacy

Literacy is a human right. It’s critical to make sure that we teach our children with visual impairments, including CVI, in the best way they can learn—there’s always a way to reach them.


CVI Now hosted a conversation with Tammy Reisman, of the University of Massachusetts-Boston on CVI and literacy, with a focus on dual media. This Q&A session, entitled “Literacy is a human right”: Exploring CVI and dual media literacy, reinforces the notion that all students are ready for literacy, in the modality and at the level that matches their abilities.

In this discussion Reisman, and CVI Now Host Rachel Bennett, discuss universal literacy, functionality literacy, compensatory skills, and adaptations for supporting access to literacy for students with cortical/cerebral visual impairment.
