This self-paced course, presented by members of The CVI Center at Perkins, explains typical and atypical  visual pathway function to demonstrate the effects of cortical/cerebral visual impairments on educational development.

In this course, participants will

  • Identify common causes of cortical/cerebral visual impairment
  • Identify conditions that accompany cortical/cerebral visual impairment
  • Describe typical and atypical visual pathway function
  • Define neuroplasticity
  • Explain the interconnectivity of dorsal and ventral streams, and the impact of damage to each stream
  • Explore perception of depth, motion, color, and the access to people and social interactions for individuals with cortical/cerebral visual impairment
  • Hear the voices of individuals with cortical/cerebral visual impairment

Using video clips, demonstrations, and reflections, the course instructors address visual perception, depth and motion perception, and social development. Participants earn 5 continuing education credits by passing an online assessment.
