Specialist in Cortical Vision Impairment (CVI)
Perkins-Roman Cortical Vision Impairment (CVI) Range Endorsee
M.S. Ed in Vision Rehabilitation Therapy and Orientation and Mobility
As an ACVREP Certified Orientation and Mobility Specialist (COMS) and Vision Rehabilitation Therapist (CVRT), I work with children and adults of all ages in their home environment. I currently serve students with CVI in the 5 boroughs of NYC and Long Island. My experience is in conducting the CVI Range, providing ongoing intervention and instruction, and collaborating with related-service providers and parents to ensure instructional continuity between home and school. I've had the pleasure of leading parent informational groups, facilitating support groups and developing a CVI summer program for families in Spring Valley, NY. I am a staunch advocate who has provided expert testimony in fighting for CVI-related IEP goals, testing accommodations and the provision of O&M related services. My passion is the intersection of O&M and CVI, and as I continue to work at these crossroads, my goal is contribute to the research and development of best practices.
