CVI Teacher: Sharing Ideas About Cortical Visual Impairment

CVI Teacher

Ellen Mazel is a Teacher of the Visually Impaired (TVI) with a special interest in Cortical Visual Impairment. She started her blog, CVI Teacher, to share information and ideas on how to teach children with CVI.

Her posts cover topics such as how to visually highlight objects so that the child with CVI will pay attention to them, Dr. Gordon-Lantzy’s guiding principles on working with children with CVI, and talks by Dr. Gordon Dutton, a leader in the field of CVI.

This is a really good resource for the educational aspects of CVI.
