We will learn, share, and discuss the implications of CVI on learning math skills and think about promising practices that can support the unique needs of students with CVI. The study group will hold three live virtual discussions open to all interested in learning how we can develop more accessible instructional approaches for children with CVI to fully understand math knowledge and skills (for all developmental and academic levels).
Live virtual discussions open to all. Upcoming dates are February 8 and May 3. See below for more details.
Before each live discussion, we will send a recorded presentation with a specific focus.
Participants are encouraged to share their successes, ideas, and questions.
Our goal is for professionals and families to come together intentionally as a community to share insights, discoveries, and paths of inquiry that will foster a diverse range of promising practices around CVI and math. And to gain and spread awareness of the unique visual challenges many kids with CVI face.
Schedule and Topics
The Math and CVI discussions will start back up in the fall of 2022.
If you are not already on the study group list, email [email protected] and we will get you on the list.
CVI Now will post more Math and CVI resources in the coming months. So continue to keep visiting CVI Now for current and inclusive CVI content.
Past topics and videos
Making math fun and accessible for students with CVI
CVI and Math Teaching: Sue Sullivan, TVI, M.Ed, is a Math and Computer Science teacher at Perkins School for the Blind. Sue discusses how she fosters a growth mindset, makes math fun, and adapts math activities in her classroom. Access the video transcript here.
Visualizing Math: Considerations for students with CVI
Matt Tietjen, M.Ed, CTVI, and leader in the field of CVI, discusses the
the implications of CVI on learning math skills,
the neuroscience of learning math,
why it’s important to bring together diverse perspectives to foster paths of inquiry around math and CVI, and
a look at how strategies from the On Cloud Nine math program might benefit some learners with CVI.
