Perkins eLearning has developed a course specifically to practice scoring in The CVI Range.
In order to administer The CVI Range with competency, the assessor has had to have a fair amount of practice and we hope that this provides a solution. In response to comments from practitioners in the field , calling for more opportunities to practice scoring the CVI Range, Perkins eLearning has developed this 15 credit self-paced practice session.
“Practicing The CVI Range” is made up of 3 modules, each containing video segments, reflections, and assigned activities to enhance and apply your learning. Plan to spend 1 week working through each module. While this is a self-paced course, the material will have the most impact if you work steadily through the outline in the order it is presented.
Please note: this is not an introductory course. Participants should have a good basic knowledge of CVI and experience working with children with CVI. This self-paced tutorial provides an opportunity to practice using the CVI Range and getting feedback regarding how your scores compare to the scores of Dr. Christine Roman-Lantzy.
Who is it for?
This tutorial is for anyone who has already had training on CVI and has learned about The CVI Range but desires more practice in order to administer The CVI Range with competency. To get started in their knowledge of CVI, practitioners should first gain basic knowledge by attending workshops, taking an online course and/or reading Cortical Visual Impairment: An Approach to Assessment and Intervention (2018) by Dr. Christine Roman-Lantzy.
What is the content of Practicing the CVI Range?
You will view video libraries of three children and score them using The CVI Range. Each library includes the parent interview as well as the assessment being conducted by Dr. Christine Roman-Lantzy. Once you have scored the child on The CVI Range, you will have an opportunity to see Dr. Roman-Lantzy’s score and view a feedback video of her conversation with the parents of the child regarding his/her performance on the CVI Range. You will be asked to reflect on your results in comparison to Dr. Roman-Lantzy’s and receive feedback from the tutorial moderator provided regarding your work.
This tutorial uses the text Cortical Visual Impairment, by Christine Roman-Lantzy (2nd edition), which is available from APH and Amazon.com
What others have said about this course
(I liked) “Being able to compare work with Dr. Roman. Listening to the videos of her talking with the parents as she offers additional tips and recommendations that can help my families as well. Also getting PCPs for the work is very valuable. ” – Andrea
