This book making kit is designed to create individualized books for children diagnosed with Cerebral/Cortical Visual Impairment (CVI). Children diagnosed with CVI frequently have difficulty in understanding objects, pictures, and letters presented against a complex background. CVI Book Builder provides materials for parents and teachers to build books specifically for their reader. The kit provides a variety of black pages and black binders to use as low complexity backgrounds against which to present familiar items, photos, and letters/words.
Builds a connection between an actual object and a photo of that object, teaching that photos (symbols) have meaning.
Once the child demonstrates understanding of the photos in the book, you can begin to expand learning by exploring size, direction, colors, and other developmental concepts. When understanding that symbols/pictures have meaning, they may be ready to explore letters/words. Additional book ideas are listed in the guidebook.
