Rebecca Davis: Parent Perspective on CVI

This webinar speaks to parents and service providers with great insight to the parent perspective on CVI. Rebecca Davis is a parent of an 11 year old child with CVI. She tells the story of the journey with her daughter with honesty, full feeling and deserved frustration in her attempt to navigate the system to get services to help her daughter. She touches on the federal law as it relates to students with CVI with IDEA. She discusses the need for effective identification, assessment and service to students with CVI. She discusses access for students and how parents can advocate for that access.  She discusses a CVI Action plan to monitor that access by insuring competent practitioners are members of the educational and medical teams. Most of all, she pushes for creation and expansion of the CVI Community of parents to lend a louder and louder voice that demands action.
