What is CVI?


These three sections have been written to help guide you through the process of learning to understand CVI, and if applicable apply it to an individual with CVI, to help see the world from their perspective. The following three sections have been designed to grow, as our knowledge develops through ongoing conversations with those affected by CVI. Whilst the overall structure of these sections will remain unchanged, the content will regularly evolve as we learn more through our joint understanding of CVI. This is just the seed.

  • STEP 1: Understanding CVI
    This section explains all the key areas of Cerebral Visual Impairment (CVI) including visual acuity, contrast sensitivity, colour, visual fields, dorsal stream dysfunction and the process of recognition.
  • STEP 2: Assessing CVI
    The ideas outlined here show you how to check, observe and think about a person’s vision for yourself, so that you can ensure everything shown or communicated is perceivable, thus accessible.
  • STEP 3: Supporting CVI
    This website aims to help all those affected by CVI, to help and support them through knowledge and understanding. This section features ideas and strategies from parents, carers and those affected by CVI.
