Lacking Visual Access Can Create Empty Language

This wonderful blog is by the mother of a child in Phase III who has CVI. It cautions us to “check in” to make sure the subject of our language and the materials for learning are well understood by the child.

We understand this so well for our students with ocular impairments but for children with CVI who appear to be looking, we must be very diagnostic. Are they understanding the concept fully or understanding what the learning materials represent?

For children with CVI, looking is not always understanding what is seen.
