Webinar- Strategy to See: Working with Students with Cortical Visual Impairment

Description:

Description:  So…. you have interviewed the parent, completed The CVI Range, know where your student is visually functioning on the Range, and have ordered some appropriate APH materials.  Now What?  During our webinar, Diane will discuss how her CVI Skills Inventory & Strategies Worksheet can guide you and your team members as you move forward to encourage more efficient and consistent “looking” behavior. She will also share specific strategies outlined in her book and shared on her website.   Plan to leave this webinar motivated to stop at the hardware store on your way home to pick up materials to make one of the items discussed.
