Cortical Vision Impairment:

A Deeper Look 

Impact on AAC Access and Social Skills

With National Expert

Christine Roman-Lantzy, Ph.D. 

Join 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 be providing 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.  This discussion is ideal for parents, caregivers, educators, and therapists who seek a more in-depth understanding of CVI. 

  • To learn about about scheduling a 40 minute private consultation please email Cristina at charty@elliscenter.org for this additional service.

  • This workshop qualifies for .3 continuing education credits. For those interested in CEUs, please select the appropriate ticket in link below.

After the event, visit our CVI sensory tour to learn more about the characteristics of CVI in an experiential way. We are partnering 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 assisting us with the tour, and we appreciate their support!
