CVI Now hosted a live virtual event on building accessible and meaningful learning for students with CVI held on March 25, 2021. Marguerite Tibaudo, Assistant Director of the CVI Project at Perkins, and a TVI and Deafblind specialist presented and answered parent questions about:
No child with CVI is exempt from learning. No child with CVI is too anything to keep them from learning. Children with CVI can be readers, writers, and problem solvers. And this will look different in each child, but there is no question about our children’s capacity for greatness.
“If the child with CVI is less engaged, there’s a reason for it. It’s on us, the educators and providers, to optimize every opportunity for accessible learning to move that child as close to their learning goal as possible. We cannot predict what a child with CVI can or cannot do, but we can thoughtfully design instruction that is accessible and meaningful, so they have every opportunity to show us their skills and abilities.” —Marguerite Tibaudo
