Comments From Amazon:
I am a parent of a child newly diagnosed with Cortical Vision Impairment and have found this book to be an excellent resource in many ways.
I got this book and within 2 days of reading it Julia was rolling over while trying to reach for something. To think that she has never done this because of her vision! WOW! There are so many helpful tips in this book, I want to buy 10 of them to leave with doctors and therapists so that we can all be on the same page while working with our amazing children.
After only six weeks he is starting to recognize us for short intervals and can definitely see red objects. We have hope now.
