Spring 2021: Tips on Using iPad Apps with Children who Have Cortical Visual Impairments (CVI)



Presented by: Arnold Nippert

Date: 05/08/2021

I will share some iPad apps that I like to use and why I like them. I will also share iPad strategies that I use with children with cortical visual impairments and things I look for when working with them. We will discuss a sequence of visual efficiency that you can work toward with your students. We will also provide some time for you to share an app that you like or experience you have had with our audience.

Arnold: I have been a teacher of the visually impaired for many years and have worked with children with many different diagnoses. I also enjoy teaching orientation and mobility skills to students. I’m married to my lovely wife and have two grown daughters, one who is an occupational therapist and actually asks me for advice on occasion. I’m a member of the Association for Education and Rehabilitation of the Blind and Visually Impaired and a board member of our East Valley Council for Exceptional Children.
