Oculomotor dysfunction in cerebral visual impairment
following perinatal hypoxia.
To aid the diagnosis and planning of management of dorsal stream dysfunction, our team developed the Cerebral Visual Impairment Question Inventory (Dutton et al.
Spectrum of visual disorders in children with cerebral visual impairment.
Letter to the editor: Cortical visual impairment is not the same as cerebral visual impairment
Proponents of the term cerebral visual impairment
made another major mistake by restricting visual function and visual disorders to the cerebrum.
In addition, the inclusion of the visual field, as well as visual perceptual factors, was proposed in the diagnosis of cerebral visual impairment
(Jacobson, Ek, Ygge, & Marburg, 2004).
Cortical or cerebral visual impairment
(CVI) can result when the visual pathways and visual processing areas of the brain have been damaged (Dutton, McKillop, & Saidkasimova, 2006; Morse, 1999; Salati, Borgatti, Giammari, & Jacobson, 2002).
Abstract: Damage to the areas of the brain that are responsible for higher visual processing can lead to severe cerebral visual impairment
These children typically have a visual diagnosis of cerebral visual impairment
(CVI), but their learning characteristics and needs go far beyond their use of vision.
