Ellis Community Education Event
Held: May 11th, 2019
Cortical Vision Impairment:
A Deeper Look
Impact on AAC Access and Social Skills
With National Expert
Christine Roman-Lantzy, Ph.D.
Thank you to all who joined us for an engaging forum with national expert, Dr. Christine Roman-Lantzy, whose first book paved the way for expanded knowledge of Cortical Vision Impairment (CVI). She will provided an overview of identifying and assessing children with CVI as well as the impact of this often-misunderstood impairment on their social and communication skills including AAC usage.
For insight into the basics of CVI please click here to learn about Dr. Roman-Lantzy’s first book.
After the event, attendees did our CVI sensory tour to learn more about the characteristics of CVI in an experiential way. We partnered with Pace Academy’s fifth grade for our fourth year in a row, providing understanding, education and service to the Ellis Center. The students will be assisted us with the tour, and we appreciate their support!
