DESCRIPTION: In this webinar, Elizabeth McCann, Scottish Sensory Centre, will explain briefly what Cerebral Visual Impairment is, and the difference between it and an ocular impairment. The use of sign systems, symbols, and pictures will be discussed in relation to what we know about CVI, and how these may need to be adapted or presented differently for the best effect. Ideas for improving the communication environment will also be explored and the presenter will explain how making small changes will be beneficial for all children in the class, not just those with CVI. The workshop part lasts about 20 minutes; there will be 5-10 minutes after this for questions and answers.
