Do you know what they see?

I suspect that a huge number of the adults with PIMD that I meet have undiagnosed cortical vision impairment. The compromised understanding of what the person can see, and the strategies that could optimise their use of existing skills, has an impact on quality of life.

I watched a great 30 webinar on CVI today, and I’d encourage everyone supporting adults with PIMD to watch it. Substitute the word child for adult – I don’t know what evidence there is for improving functional vision in adults, but I do know that understanding impairments can help a person optimally use the skills that they do have.
