Happy White Cane Day!! O&M for individuals with CV Happy White Cane Day!!
O&M for individuals with CVI is imperative. Canes help with lower field loss and more!! ❀️

While this girl is pretty far and away from using her white cane post-surgery, it has proven to be a valuable tool for her independent ambulation!

We're looking forward to this becoming her norm again. She certainly did try and took a few steps with it when we tried in PT. She can't wait to get back to this too. πŸ’ͺ❀️πŸ’ͺ

How to know you've created an Alexa monster... πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

Today was a day at home to stave off a head cold, likely brought in by allergies.

I turned off the tv, told her it was time for her to rest, nap, actually, closed the door. No sooner had I taken a few steps away did  I hear, "Alexa, turn on Fire TV..." 🀦

If you listen closely, you can hear her tell Alexa to play .Jonah. πŸ˜‚πŸ’ͺ❀️πŸ’ͺ🀣

We're going for it! We worked through the teaching We're going for it! We worked through the teaching letters lessons and found good alphabet knowledge so we are moving on to teaching words. πŸ˜€ 

In an attempt to teach the keyboard too, we are paring these lesson, which focus on a small number of letters grouped across lessons with this masked keyboard to manage the complexity of all those letter together.

Because we BELIEVE that ALL learners CAN learn to READ.

Did you know???

People call CVI a low incident disability. But, it's the #1 visual impairment in school aged children.

Not so low incident then, is it?

And most certainly NOT low impact.

CVI impacts EVERY ASPECT of a child's life.
