Event description
Diane Sheline, M.A. Ed., TVI, Independent Consultant for Students with CVI, from Texas, USA

About this Event

Diane Sheline will be joining us from the US to talk about identification of children with CVI, current research, and simple techniques and strategies to use with children who have a diagnosis of CVI (or some other form of brain damage related vision loss). Diane will also talk about her website and share with participants her book, Strategy to See: Strategies for Students with Cerebral/Cortical Visual Impairment. Come to this training and learn how to encourage your students to use their vision more efficiently on a daily basis. There will be an opportunity for questions from 12-12.30pm.

Target Audience: Teachers, therapists, parents, and others who are involved with individuals with CVI

Cortical Visual Impairment, or CVI, is now the leading cause of visual impairment in children in developed countries. We now understand that because of visual plasticity, we often can see a more positive outcome regarding functional use of vision, when we encourage the student to use vision often and consistently. When a student with CVI has had a thorough assessment, such as with the CVI Range (Roman, 2018), Team Members often have a better understanding of visual functioning level and are therefore better able to make appropriate adaptations to the environment, modify teaching materials, use strategies and plan appropriate instruction which meets the student’s visual needs. When appropriate use of strategies and techniques are used by the student’s entire Team, there are more opportunities for the student to use vision throughout their day and therefore, increase chances for visual plasticity to occur.

Please contact the Training Officer if you have any questions: training@indigosolutions.org.au or call 08 9381 0600.
