Visual Impairment with Multiple Handicaps (MIVI)

Active Learning

Lili Nielsen developed the approach of Active Learning, while working with children who were blind with additional disabilities such as mental impairments, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, autism and hearing loss.  This approach was developed to help these children develop tactile skills and build foundational skills in other critical cognitive, physical and emotional development (TSBVI).

Communication Matrix

This is an easy to use assessment instrument designed for individuals of all ages who function at the earliest stages of communication and who use any form of communication.
