Product Description

Children diagnosed with CVI often have difficulty understanding objects, pictures, and letters presented against a complex background. CVI Book Builder provides materials for parents and teachers to build books specifically for their reader. The kit provides a variety of black pages and black binders to use as low complexity backgrounds against which to present familiar items, photos, and letters/words.

Note: Binders and pages in Tactile Book Builder and CVI Book Builder can be used interchangeably. Most kit components are available as replacement parts.

    • CVI Book Builder:
    • Builds a connection between an actual object and a photo of that object, teaching that photos (symbols) have meaning.
    • takes advantage of natural learning opportunities (i.e. at tooth brushing times, present the child's toothbrush and describe it while letting them explore, and then proceed with brushing his teeth. Attach the toothbrush to a black needlepoint canvas page; present it next to the photo on a polyblend page).
    • Once the child demonstrates understanding of the photos in the book, you can begin to expand learning by exploring size, direction, colors, and other developmental concepts.
    • When understanding that symbols/pictures have meaning, they may be ready to explore letters/words.
    • Additional book ideas are listed in the guidebook.
