#13/14 in the CVI for the TVI webinar series
Print literacy for individuals with Cortical Visual Impairment will look different for each student. Research on best practices in reading instruction is important to know and apply to instruction for all learners. For learners with brain-based visual impairments, knowledge of the individual’s CVI characteristics and Range score (Roman-Lantzy, 2007) must be used to deliberately customize learning approaches, materials and environments. This tutorial is made up of 2 parts, for 2.5 continuing education credits.
Judy Endicott will be sharing her grandson, River, and her CVI Journey into Phase III including:
- Explain the Cortical Visual Impairment (CVI) overlay that guides our work with River.
- Share how we have altered River’s materials, environments, and strategies by putting the CVI overlay in place.
- Share successful research-based instructional strategies in the 5 critical components of reading instruction documented in the National Reading Panel report of 2000.
- Share recommended, “promising practices,” used with River and elementary school learners.
