APH is now offering information about Cortical Visual Impairment (CVI) to consumers via the internet. This new CVI web site reports a wealth of information from different sources and viewpoints. Sections include a definition of CVI, Intervention Strategies, Advocacy and Resources, and many more. The web site is an evolving resource of current knowledge on this leading cause of blindness.
