Add to Calendar 06/26/2022 16:00 06/26/2022 14:00 America/New_York Perkins hosts CVI: Collaboration for Change Conference Let’s collaborate to urgently confront the world’s leading cause of childhood blindness. https://www.perkins.org/event/cvi-collab-conference/ [email protected] Hybrid MM/DD/YYYY

Cortical/Cerebral Visual Impairment (CVI) is a brain-based visual impairment, affecting over 150,000 children in the U.S. alone, a number that keeps growing. CVI is not new, it’s misunderstood and under-diagnosed. With timely diagnosis, early intervention and appropriate educational programs, we can help kids with CVI access their world.

Every person with CVI can learn and every person with CVI should define their own success. No matter their zip code, no matter how their CVI manifests, every individual has the right to access opportunities that will empower them to reach their full potential.

Meaningful collaboration across sectors improves the outcomes of individuals with CVI. The conference will be a gathering place of ideas representing diverse perspectives in the field. Join us and the wide range of stakeholders in the CVI community: individuals with CVI, families, medical professionals, educators, therapists, providers, and advocates.
