What is Cortical Visual Impairment (CVI)?
CVI is a decreased visual response due to a neurological problem affecting the visual part of the brain. Typically, a child with CVI has a normal eye exam or does not have an eye condition that can account for the abnormal visual behaviour.

Typical characteristics of CVI:
• Preference for a specific colour. 
• Need or preference for movement. 
• Delayed response when looking at objects (visual latency).
• Difficulty with visual complexity. 
• Light-gazing and non-purposeful gazing.
• Visual field preferences. 
• Distance vision impaired. 
• Visual blink reflex is absent or impaired. 
• Preference for familiar objects. 
• Impaired visually guided reach.

The wonderful reality of CVI is that it can, and usually does, get better with appropriate intervention. Brain Plasticity provides an opportunity for neuronal activity to be rerouted from the damaged areas of the visual pathways to other areas of the brain.

What is Anat Baniel Method® of NeuroMovement (ABM)?
ABM is a science-based, breakthrough approach that focuses on the child’s brain and its remarkable ability to change and learn.
The method’s gentle movements wake up the child’s brain to create new connections, often at a staggering rate, leading to spontaneous and extraordinary breakthroughs in movement, thinking, self-regulation, and connection with others.
