How it works

The Perkins CVI Protocol provides two important things: assessment and mentorship.

It offers assessment for visual and compensatory skills. The process is grounded in Perkins’ expertise and focused on 16 key assessment areas, rooted in the latest research. It also goes deeper to create a series of tailored reports to help parents, TVIs, school systems, and medical professionals understand and meet the unique needs of each individual child with CVI.

At Perkins, we want you to know: There is hope. There is support. And, now, there’s a groundbreaking way to drive change for your child. Together, we can help kids with CVI learn to access their world.

Perkins is urgently confronting the leading cause of childhood blindness. The Perkins CVI Protocol will change the game for those who need it most.
