Center for the Visually Impaired (CVI)
The Center for the Visually Impaired (CVI) is a comprehensive, fully-accredited nonprofit facility in Atlanta, Ga. that provides services, support and training to people of all ages who are blind or visually impaired. For parents, learning that your child has a vision problem can be scary and overwhelming. CVI is here to help. Each child’s needs are unique, and our services are tailored to support your child’s development and your family. CVI offers a range of services from functional vision assessments and developmental services for children 6 months to 5 years of age to independent living skills training for school age children so they can learn and develop the skills and self-confidence to thrive at school, in the community and ultimately in the workplace.
Some of the training children can receive include cooking and other household skills, braille, orientation and mobility, and assistive technology. They also have learning and support opportunities for parents.
