We will learn, share, and discuss research about the implications of CVI on learning math skills and promising practices to support the unique needs of students with CVI. The study group will hold three live virtual discussions open to all interested in learning how we can develop more accessible instructional approaches for children with CVI to fully understand math knowledge and skills (for all developmental and academic levels).
Our goal is for professionals and families to come together intentionally as a community to share insights, discoveries, and paths of inquiry that will foster a diverse range of promising practices around CVI and math. And to gain and spread awareness of the unique visual challenges many kids with CVI face.
Matt Tietjen, M.Ed, CTVI, and leader in the field of CVI developed a thoughtful and research-driven pre-recorded presentation. The Math and CVI study group met on December 7 to discuss key points from Matt’s presentation and other topics related to CVI and math. Read about key takeaways from Visualizing Math and the corresponding discussion. You may also want to watch Matt’s first video, CVI and the Math Mind, in addition to this one.

More information to come about the focus of this discussion! This topic will most likely be informed by what comes out of the prior study group discussions.
CVI Now hosted a live virtual event on CVI and the Math Mind, held in February 2021. So many visual skills and visual processing skills go into math concepts such as 1:1 counting, number sense, time, and equations. How can we approach math from a strength-based perspective, one that incorporates multisensory learning and CVI adaptations, supports, and accommodations?
