CVI is the leading cause of childhood blindness
CVI stands for Cortical/Cerebral Visual Impairment. CVI is a brain-based visual impairment caused by damage to the visual pathways or visual processing areas of the brain—and it’s the leading cause of blindness in children. Individuals with CVI are on the blindness spectrum and neurodiverse, and their perspective on the world is unique and valuable. An individualized multisensory approach to learning and intervention, rooted in comprehensive assessment, empowers life-changing access.
Every individual with CVI, no matter their zip code or how their CVI manifests, has a right to early diagnosis, effective vision services, and accessible educational programs.
