There is a lot to consider when working with kids with CVI in a remote learning setting. CVI Now hosted a live virtual event on CVI and Remote Learning on September 29, 2020. In this video you’ll hear from three educators—Megan Connaughton, Emily Cantillon, and Ilse Willems—who each work with students with CVI that have a range of needs. These educators are creative and outside-of-the-box thinkers who speak about how they’ve adapted to remote learning and some promising practices they currently use with their students.
Megan Connaughton, a special educator and Deafblind Specialist. Megan is a preschool teacher in the Deafblind program at Perkins School for the Blind.
Emily Cantillon, a TVI who is Perkins-Roman CVI Range Endorsed. Emily is also pursuing a Graduate Certificate in CVI at UMass Boston. Emily is a TVI for Perkins Community Programs. She works with school-aged students in public school districts.

After their presentations, Megan, Emily, and Ilse answered questions from parents of children with CVI.
