Program description: Amanda Lueck will review potential consequences of Cerebral/Cortical Visual Impairments (CVI) that include vision, visual processing, and other concerns, discuss ways in which potential consequences of CVI and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) can overlap, and determine strategies for addressing student needs related to CVI. Maurice Belote will then review consequences of Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD) that can also be overlooked. Time for Q&A will be provided at the end of the session.
