Description

Cortical Visual Impairment (CVI) is the most common cause of visual impairment in the US today. The issue with CVI is that although an eye exam may be normal children cannot interpret what they see. Often associated with neurological issues CVI is under diagnosed and under treated. CVI manifests in children who have difficulty with joint attention, have limited or no eye contact, are overstimulated by too much noise and clutter and prefer familiar objects to novel ones. Many kids with CVI are misunderstood and misdiagnosed as having ASD, ADHD, ID.
