Cortical Visual Impairment: An Approach to Assessment and Intervention

By Christine Roman-Lantzy

The current leading cause of visual impairment among children is not a
disease or condition of the eyes, but cortical visual impairment
(CVI)—also known as cerebral visual impairment—in which visual
dysfunction is caused by damage or injury to the brain. The definition,
nature, and treatment of CVI are the focus of great concern and
widespread debate, and this complex condition poses challenges to
professionals and families seeking to support the growth and development
of visually impaired children. On the basis of more than 30 years'
experience in working with hundreds of children of all ages with CVI,
Christine Roman-Lantzy has developed a set of unique assessment tools
and systematic, targeted principles whose use has helped children learn
to use their vision more effectively. This one-of-a-kind resource
provides readers with both a conceptual framework with which to
understand working with CVI and concrete strategies to apply directly in
their work.

Proceedings of the Summit on Cerebral/Cortical Visual Impairment:
Educational, Family, and Medical Perspectives, April 30, 2005

Cortical or cerebral visual impairment (CVI) is now viewed as the most
common cause of visual impairment in children in this country and is a
matter of international concern as well. But despite widespread
attention, agreement on definitions and methods of assessing and dealing
with this complex condition has remained elusive. These proceedings of
the Summit record a historic attempt to reach consensus by a group of
distinguished experts representing diverse viewpoints. Presentations by
educational and medical professionals as well as by parents are
included, as are the day's illuminating discussions among the presenters
and guest participants.
