CVI Literacy Collection at PRCVI

Students with cerebral/cortical visual impairment (CVI) may have some unique sensory access requirements to literacy experiences. For the past several years, PRCVI has been maintaining a collection of literacy materials that meet the access needs of students with CVI.

Books within the CVI literacy collection feature simple, high-contrast illustrations and text. The books have been transcribed into print-braille format so that students can access the reading medium that fits their learning profile. To date, PRCVI has added about 40 print/braille books to this collection and is adding more books all the time.

To find CVI literacy materials for your students, head over to the PRCVI Catalogue and search for “CVI literacy materials” (with or without quotes) and select the Search button. In the sidebar of the results screen, select Braille UEB and Print Book under the Format category.

We hope you find these resources helpful for your students with CVI!

About the author

Jen Jesso

I have worked in various roles in the field of visual impairment since 2007. In addition to working as a teacher of students with visual impairments, I recently completed coursework to become an orientation and mobility specialist. I have been fortunate to work with the fantastic team at PRCVI since 2014.

I enjoy many aspects of my role at PRCVI, but highlights include working with teachers of students with visual impairments and their students on outreach visits and working on PRCVI initiatives and projects.

Outside of work, my interests include reading, computer programming, swimming, and spending time with friends and family.
