  2. I am a regular reader of your information. Thank you! I am a retired reading specialist who is very involved with helping my CVI grandson learn how to read. Is there any chance I can audit your class? I have a master’s + 30 credits already. Thank you so much!


    1. I am not sure whether UMASS allows that. I think you might need to contact UMASS Vision Studies Program to answer that question. Thanks for your interest in CVI!
