Follow us on Insta (or Facebook if that’s your preference) to see what is happening in our world of See CVI, Speak AAC, where we share quick shots of communication exchanges, advocacy, and build outs.

Just opened: registration for the American Conference on Pediatric Brain-based Visual Impairment (PCVI). It will be a hybrid event this year, with both a live in-person conference with simultaneous streaming.

Christine Roman, PhD and I will be presenting a case study of an older student whose CVI journey didn't begin with CVI interventions/adaptations implemented until she was nearly 16. 

A look back over 4 years reveals how those adaptations changed her life, learning and functional vision. 

That young lady is our very own Emma. Excited to share our journey. πŸ’ͺ❀️πŸ’ͺ

It's coming! If you need AAC apps, April and October are when to buy. Assistiveware's sale is March 29 - April 4! 

We use Proloquo2Go for our system as it is highly customizable to meet CVI visual and motor access needs. 

There are other systems which are also highly customizable (Snap Core if the first to come to mind), but P2Go is what we use.

Happy Spring into AAC! 😊

Life with a child with multiple disabilities is not always easy. But, this girl will always have a way to tell us what is on her mind. Tucked in bed during this last challenge, always her talker. β€οΈπŸ‘€πŸ§ πŸ’¬πŸ—£οΈ

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🀣
