If your child has been recently diagnosed with CVI, join one of our virtual sessions to connect, learn, and find support.

Support for caregivers of children and young adults who recently received a CVI diagnosis

If your child has been recently diagnosed with CVI, join us to connect, learn, and find support. In this one-hour virtual session, the first half will be in presentation format, and the second half will be a space for questions and real talk. Learn about CVI, all that it impacts, and guidance on next steps. 

We welcome parents/caregivers of children of any age with a recent diagnosis of CVI. 

As a parent of a child with CVI, I will never forget ‘diagnosis day’ and the emotions that followed.

Upcoming virtual sessions:

We will offer this same virtual session quarterly. Only register for one session. Since we want this to be an intentional and open space where you can learn and ask your questions, these sessions will not be recorded.

Facilitated by: Lacey Smith, M.Ed. TVI and CVI Mom

If you have any questions, please email [email protected].

If a group discussion is not your thing, sign up for a 30-minute 1:1 CVI parent support session.

Henry’s love and passion for riding our public transportation trains and buses is going on three years strong now. So we’ve been able to get gifts connected to this love. A few favorites: MBTA train toy models and MBTA t-shirts and sweatshirts. For his recent birthday, a fellow CVI friend got him this train toy with music, lights, and movement, and he loves it. We also got some gifts outside this interest. The DRIVEN toy vehicle line has been great to go back to again and again. Fidgets and sensory toys are always a win because he can get into them immediately: keyboard fidgets and a cheap light-up spinner at Walgreens. We got him the Pop It! Pro last year, and while the light-up game goes a bit too fast for him, he really likes engaging with it. Honestly, the best gift is a train ride to get his favorite dairy-free ice cream.
