Product Description

Babies with CVI: Nurturing Visual Abilities and Development in Early Childhood is based on the author’s nearly five-decade career working with families in homes and classrooms. Understanding and knowledge about effective interventions to address the visual skills of children with CVI evolved enormously over that period. Babies with CVI reflects that evolution. The book presents specific approaches, strategies, and activity suggestions that families and visual impairment professionals can use to meet the unique learning needs of a child with CVI. It stresses the importance of early intervention, proper evaluation, and integrating teaching opportunities into the child’s daily routine.


“[This book] is my effort to present easy-to-digest information to parents and professionals less familiar with the learning needs of babies with CVI, and to offer suggestions for interventions and strategies to help these babies learn visual skills and maximize visual learning opportunities.”

– Author, Anne McComiskey

    About the Author

  • Praise for Babies with CVI:
    “Babies with Cerebral Visual Impairment is a book I wish I had when I began working with babies and families back in 1975. This kind of work was all so new then — new to me and new to the field. My teacher preparation program focused on teaching school-age children, not working with adults who had never anticipated becoming the parents of children with a disability. I learned from week to week, and from family to family. [This book] would have shortened my learning period. The book provides strategies for approaching families, making home visits, and having appropriate (and sometimes difficult) conversations. Better yet, [the author] gives the reader activities and interventions for working with infants and toddlers with CVI.”
