  • Virtual Summer Institute Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) and Cortical Visual Impairment (CVI) 5 Part series presented by Connections Beyond Sight and Sound 

August 4 - 18th 2020

Cortical visual impairment (CVI) is the leading cause of vision impairment in children. CVI is an impairment where the eyes are healthy but the child has difficulties with interpretation of visual information. Most children with CVI have additional disabilities including motor, intellectual, hearing, and communication challenges. These issues often result in the need for Augmentative and Alternative communication support. Children with CVI have unique vision characteristics that affect how they can access AAC. This presentation will provide some examples of how a vision and AT specialist/Speech Language Pathologist can work together with children with CVI to support their communication needs and find the right fit for AAC devices. Presentation will include video examples of successful AAC use by students with CVI.
