Effective Interaction Strategies for Children with Cortical Visual Impairment and Complex Communication Needs

In previous webinars, we have talked about the impact of Cortical Visual Impairment (CVI) on children with Complex Communication Needs (CCN), how to identify them, assess and accommodate the environment and the materials we use with them; and although we have talked about some interaction strategies, in this webinar, we want to highlight the importance of interaction strategies and how we can frame them around 5 key principles. Our decision-making processes are informed by the 10 CVI characteristics, the CVI Range assessments of our students, and insights gleaned from ongoing research at The Bridge School. While offering practical classroom examples, we also underscore the adaptability of these principles for interventions in diverse environments. This presentation equips educators, therapists, and caregivers with actionable insights to empower children with CVI and CCN, fostering improved communication and learning outcomes. 

Participants will be able to: 

  • List 3 key principles regarding interaction strategies they can use when working with children with CVI and CCN 
  • Explain why interaction strategies will look differently from child to child and include the factors that need to be considered 
  • Design individualized plans that incorporate the use of strategies that eliminate opportunity barriers
