ModMath is a math app that was created by parents, to help their child who has a learning disability and difficulty with handwriting. The free app “provides students a pencil free platform for doing basic arithmetic” equations including addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Many of our kids with cortical visual impairment (CVI) also have difficulty with fine motor tasks like handwriting. ModMath could be a good option for students with CVI. A bonus would be the ability to color code math equations. The verdict is still out on that, but the question has been proposed.
If not for CVI conferencees, trainings and assessments, this CVI mom would never go anywhere. My son has been in Phase III CVI (Roman-Lantzy) for more than a year. Now the goal is to learn as much as possible about Phase III, what that means, and how best to support him, especially as a student with CVI in the general education setting. Watching my son progress along the CVI Range has been everything from exhilirating to gruelling. Being in Phase III is sort of like slowing down as you near the end of the road. But knowing you will never quite reach the end. And so last spring I attended a two day workshop on Phase III CVI at Perkins School for the Blind, taught by Christine Roman-Lantzy.

“Cortical Visual Impairment, A Focus on Phase III Learners”
Presenter: Dr. Christine Roman-Lantzy
June 19 – 23, 2017
This workshop is designed to provide assessment and educational information regarding Cortical Visual Impairment, specifically for children who score in Phase III on The CVI Range. Participants will gain knowledge and skill to better identify, assess, and educate children who have CVI. This is NOT an introductory CVI course!
The Institute is designed for participants who have experience and prior knowledge of CVI. This is not an introductory course!
The course content is specifically relevant for individuals who live or work with children who have cortical visual impairment with or without other disabilities. This Institute is designed to meet the needs of regular and special educators, family members, related service providers, administrators, teachers of the visually impaired, and teachers of the deaf/hard-of-hearing who work directly or indirectly with students with dual sensory impairments and/or cortical visual impairment, Phase III.
