CVI is the leading cause of childhood blindness
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. CVI-related vision problems impact up to 1 in 30 kids in mainstream classrooms. CVI is common in children with Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, Autism, and neurodevelopmental conditions. 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.
