Practice Perspective — JVIB Abstract

Abstract: Cerebral or cortical visual impairment (herein referred to as CVI) is not the unknown condition it was 50 years ago. Although research had been conducted and papers published, it was not until the 1980s that it really became an issue of concern and much debate for educators. This interest was primarily sparked by the increasing numbers of children who had been diagnosed with the condition and the prolific efforts of many medical and nonmedical individuals and institutions. During that time, wide variations were discovered among individuals with CVI. Most had difficulty with or the inability to visually recognize objects in general or certain categories of objects such as animals or automobiles, to manage heavy sensory-motor demands, or to use two-dimensional visual representations (Morse, 1999).
