Great quote from Dr James Jan, to whom we owe so much for his contributions on cortical visual impairment (CVI). Dr Jan’s work of studying, defining, and writing about CVI began in the 1980s. The quote illustrated here was traced back to 2001. #StartSeeingCVI2018

“Traditionally, educators for the visually impaired assisted only those whose eye conditions were associated with visual loss (reduced acuity). Now it has become necessary to offer services for those whose visual loss is due to brain damage. Thus, the definition of CVI was born.”

– Dr James E. Jan, 2001
