Abstract
A companion book to Cortical Visual Impairment: An Approach to Assessment and Intervention. The book, a collaboration among experts in several disciplines, dives deeper into topics that are extensions of the original concepts. CVI: Advanced Principles offers an in-depth examination of the needs of students and individuals with CVI in areas such as literacy, social skills, and O&M, while also addressing the demands of students with CVI and other disabilities, such as complex communication needs and hearing loss. The authors consider students with CVI in the context of their entire day to see how the tasks they perform, the interactions they have, and the environments they encounter can be evaluated and adapted to help them build their visual skills and experience success.
