US Paediatric Ophthalmologist Dr Linda Lawrence gives a talk to empower parents to seek as much information as possible when it comes to understanding their child's vision, especially with very young pre-verbal children and complex non-verbal children.
Some points we felt were particularly well explained in her talk:
A child cannot learn visually from what is not perceivable to them, so all elements of their vision need to be assessed, and understood, so they can be catered for.
Not all people assessing vision in pre-verbal babies and infants, and non-verbal children have Dr Lawrence's experience and skills. So this video can be shared if appropriate.
Your generous donations will be put to immediate use in supporting our charity...
At CVI Scotland we are devoted to helping people understand cerebral visual impairments, and together working towards developing the understanding of this complex condition.
