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 skills are measured on a scale from 1-10 around each of the characteristics:
- Visual fields
- Light gazing/non purposeful gaze
- Distance Viewing
- Visual Reflexive Responses
- Visual Novelty
- Visual Motor
