I hope everyone is staying safe and well. To those who have been personally touched by the COVID-19 pandemic, I send my deepest concerns and sincere wishes for recovery.
Some of you may know that my clinic, Pediatric VIEW at West Penn Hospital is currently closed.
This is a hospital policy and I am uncertain of the re-open date.
Anyone whose appointment has been cancelled will be offered appointments for the soonest possible times.
I will make every effort to put additional PVP dates in my schedule when we are back in operation.
In the meantime, please know that I am setting up Zoom meetings with anyone who wishes to check in with questions, observations, or to just touch base. If you would like to plan a Zoom meeting or a phone call, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Welcome to the CVI Resources Website. I offer this site in response to families and professionals who have asked for a reliable method to contact me for information or support regarding children with visual impairment/CVI.
I have been working in the field of visual impairment since 1973, first as an itinerant teacher and O&M specialist in the public schools and later, in university settings preparing future teachers of the visually impaired. My training in medically fragile, high-risk infants led me to develop a parallel career as an infant development specialist in a neonatal intensive care setting.
My understanding of children with CVI is a result of the joining of my work in both educational and medical settings. I feel fortunate to have had such enriching experiences and to have found myself in a position to offer information and assistance to my fellow educators and to families of children with visual impairment/CVI.
