Math and CVI Study Group

Join us for live virtual sessions to learn and discuss promising practices for CVI and math.

Learn, share and discuss ideas about CVI and math.

Join us for a live virtual discussion exploring CVI and math education on Tuesday, May 2, 2023 at 3:00 pm EST (This discussion will not be recorded.)

We will learn, share, and discuss experiences regarding the implications of CVI on learning math skills and promising practices to support the unique needs of students with CVI. The study group is open to parents, educators, administrators, and individuals with CVI interested in learning how to develop more accessible instructional approaches for children with CVI to fully understand math knowledge and skills (for all developmental and academic levels).
We want this to be a discussion where we hear ideas and questions from various participants, so we will allot time to cover the following items:

  • Resources/What’s new in the field
  • Strategies that are working well
  • Strategies that are not working/group problem solving
  •  Questions for the group

Dr. Tina Herzberg will kick off our May 2nd discussion. Dr. Herzberg is a Professor and Coordinator of the Visual Impairment Education Program at the University of South Carolina Upstate, the co-author of the Pearson Nemeth Curriculum, and the principal investigator of Project INSPIRE: Increasing the STEM Potential of Individuals Who Read Braille. Dr. Herzberg recently presented about CVI and Nemeth with two other middle school students with CVI. Learn more about Nemeth Code, a special type of braille used for math. After we hear from Dr. Herzberg, we’ll open up the discussion for participants to bring topics of interest to the group.

If you have any questions ahead of May 2nd, feel free to email [email protected].
