One of the most common questions from parents of children with cortical visual impairment (CVI) is, how do I approach literacy? Below is a link to a post from a CVI mom on how the “whole word” approach to literacy, developed by Christine Roman-Lantzy, and how to create “bubble words” in the YouDoodle app.
“Children with CVI often require a whole word approach to learning how to recognize words. The bubble word strategy developed by Dr. Christine Roman-Lantzy enables children with CVI to interpret the shape and salient features of the word.”
Literacy is just one reason why direct instruction in salient features (Roman) is so important.
