TIES Inclusive Practices Series (TIPS): Learners with Cerebral/Cortical Visual Impairment (CVI) and Augmentative Alternative Communication (AAC) (#24)

New

Description

Students with Cerebral/Cortical Vision Impairment (CVI) may have difficulty processing the images their eyes see, which can affect many areas of basic visual functions. This TIP focuses on students with CVI and how it relates to learners with significant cognitive disabilities who use Alternative and Augmentative Communication or AAC, with a particular focus on inclusive environments.
