#27 in the CVI for the TVI webinar series

Visual fatigue is likely one of the most common shared experiences among individuals with CVI. Research shows that there is a neurological and physiological reason why individuals with CVI become so easily fatigued. We will explore the science behind visual fatigue and how the neural network of a CVI brain is “fundamentally different”; what individuals with CVI and parents of children with CVI say about what visual fatigue looks and feels like; and ideas for how a multi-sensory approach can help reduce visual fatigue and ensure access to learning and the environment throughout the day.
