5 Resources for Supporting Individuals with CVI Who Are Learning to Use AAC

I was inspired yesterday by a low vision specialist who came to an AAC workshop I did in north central Florida. Time for a little resource sharing!

1. Texas School for the  Blind and Visually Impaired Outreach Program: This site has a wonderful introduction to the various aspects of cortical visual impairment with many short videos on intervention to help maximize visual skills.

2. Introducing Your Blind Child to a New Teacher: Helpful information and downloads from Perkins and the Wonder Baby project.

3. Team Approach to CVI In Schools: Booklet by Little Bear Sees

4. Thinking Outside the LightBox: This is an active Facebook group with helpful information, resources, and timely announcements.

5. Sneak Outside the Box: Wonderful blog by SLP Tanna Patterson Neufeld with good ideas for therapy, play, and education many of which are applicable to children with CVI.
