CVI for the TVI & other Professionals

A monthly webinar open to CVI professionals.

A monthly forum for collaboration and discussion.

With CVI as the leading cause of visual impairment in school-aged children in the U.S., we believe that TVI’s and other professionals would benefit from a having a regular, educational forum to discuss the challenges of meeting the needs of this population.

In response, we are pleased to offer a monthly web-based “meeting” via Zoom which is open to professionals who have signed up to participate.  It is a closed meeting – open to members only.  If you are interested in becoming a member Please join the mailing list.

The CVI for the TVI Committee developed this concept patterned after a similar “meeting” held by parents on a weekly basis. It seemed important to provide a venue for professionals to come together as well. Get to know the committee members as they share their stories.
