CVI stands for cortical visual impairment, a brain based visual impairment.  The condition has the great possibility for improvements when a child has carefully crafted environmental and learning strategies to support increased vision use and discrimination.

Dr. Roman-Lantzy uses the CVI Range to assess children.  The visual skills are measured on a continuum from 1-10 around each of the characteristics.
