Cortical visual impairment (CVI) is the leading cause of pediatric visual impairment in the developed world. The eyes can see, but the brain can't interpret the visual world. Due to neuroplasticity, the functional vision of a child with CVI can improve. The number of children with CVI is growing, so why isn't anyone talking about this public health crisis? We are.

This podcast offers families and friends of children affected by CVI something we all need more of: hope. Each episode is an opportunity to follow one child’s unique path from diagnosis to present. Each child featured has a message for us. Each parent interviewed has shared something which inspired me. This is awesome! Thank you.

CVI Parents: You’re Not Alone!

This podcast provides much-needed inspiration, hope, and information for all those affected by Cortical Visual Impairment. Thank you, Jessica, for sharing these stories of neuroplasticity and people’s journeys with CVI - the triumphs, the struggles, and the often invisible, constant, hard work of parents (and some professionals) in-between.
