Assessment for Students with Cortical/Cerebral Visual Impairment

Students will learn how traditional ocular functional vision assessments do not accurately and completely assess the visual processing and visual recognition difficulties of the child with brain based visual impairment. Students will understand concepts including the limitation of clinical vision functional testing and the need for functional vision testing by a licensed TVIs O&M specialist and Vision Rehabilitation professionals. Students will show ability to interpret ophthalmology low vision and neurology reports. Students will learn to effectively perform CVI functional vision assessments and Learning Media Assessments with the consideration that neuroplasticity can lead to visual improvements and that each child needs a unique consideration of all skills and abilities. Assessment of compensatory skill use is also essential to understand the total child.
