Chad Smith

Simple black non-slip kitchen cabinet liners also work, as they will help hold items in place as well
Lucas Harris
33:21
In Paint3D you can take the picture out of the background and put on whatever color you want!
Chad Smith
33:22
And can be cut to any size
Lori Bousfield

on zoom they have a white board do you know if you can change that to a black board
Lori Bousfield
36:31
thanks Robbin and Charlotte
Stacey Richart
38:00
You can change the background color to black on the zoom whiteboard by selecting the moon icon.
Shannon Rustin
38:26
how do you change the Zoom background to black?

I am also a parent of a child with CHARGE syndrome and CVI. We have made him a different location to work and gave him choices of what he wanted to work on first. He is 14 and has a sister that helps him with his academic work. She is actually very patient with him. She makes experience stories for him.

You can learn more about Active Learning here: http://www.activelearningspace.org/

We also have Active Learning Coffee Hours with TSBVI. Join us Monday at 10:00 a.m. Central!
Jane Harty
43:22
This is a great representation! Love it
Dana SIegel
43:45
you mentioned contrast....don't you mean complexity?
Dana SIegel
44:42
You mentioned using the black board/covering...to present objects...
Dana SIegel
44:57
isn't that for complexity??
Chad Smith
45:37
I feel it could be both. It’s contrasting the item of focus while also reducing the complexity of whatever the background is
Julie Duchesne
46:24
Art of Glow is another neat free app to try
Shannon Rustin
49:38
For a child who has limited mobility with their hands and struggles to hold an object how would you address this during play time?
Nicole Washington
50:16
I struggle with that too Shannon. My student has almost no mobility.
Rebecca Colagreco
50:16
I had another meeting and had to sign in late, sorry Is the power point going to be available?
Robbin Clark
50:32
Rebecca, scroll up the chat window and you will find access to it
Jill Brace

Danika Dunlap
50:48
Shannon, create active learning spaces that require less movement… metal bin with beads
Danika Dunlap
51:31
or move reflexively
Nicole Washington
51:33
My student can't grasp or hold. She can only move head
Charlotte Cushman
51:47
There’s a whole section on implementing an Active Learning approach with children with CVI: http://www.activelearningspace.org/implementation/cvi/cvi-active-learning. This is a place to look for ideas for kids with limited mobility.
Robbin Clark
52:07
Here’s one of my favorites: https://www.ohiodeafblind.org/images/publications/Hold_Everything_Final_11-7-14.pdf
Robbin Clark

Piczoo is another good app to use to modify photos when a suitable background isn’t available. it allows you to place a black “frame” over any image to minimize background complexity.
Becky Rieken
57:55
I made a light bottle for a couple students and dropped them off at their house. They loved it!

My challenge is that my student's family has limited English skills. I also don't exactly how much English my student understands. I have been with her for 3 years and believe she understands most of what I say but they don't speak English at home.
Sarah Dominek
58:16
remove.bg is also great for removing background on any picture
Cindy Backhouse
58:33
definately setting up what you show, weither it be you with an appropriate background or an object. My student could access me and for him it was good to connect. We are planning to make a resource in our group sessions with parents
Tara Hill
58:56
currently have black curtains behind me (due to no clutter free wall space). Wearing shirts that are not a "tool of torture"
Darcy Allen
59:09
You Doodle is free and allows you to both delete backgrounds and create a "bubble" around it!
Charlotte Cushman
59:14
Check out the video of the Light Box Story Hour with Adam Wilton on the Virtual ExCEL Academy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Knm-4HzXThQ&list=PLUj6DcM1nN3EGnleJhGT296nMNJj9IwmB&index=14&t=0s He’s doing another session on May 8, and this is appropriate for kids with CVI.
Tami Purkey
59:29
I have used water beads in a bottle a push light! My student loves it!
Roberta Tuttle
59:36
making keynote presentations with the students objects from school and then watching him interact and access . I have learned a lot about his auditory and visual complexity needs when viewing on an iPad .
Tara Hill
59:54
using book creator app to make simple books that I make into a video and share with families.
Stacey Richart
01:00:17
I think there is information on the light bottle Becky is talking about as well as some other CVI adaptations on Paths to Literacy.

Yes
Taylor McDonald

Victoria Nix
01:01:50
Yes, that inreases the difficulty in explaining interventions

Becky Rieken
01:02:09
Thanks Stacey. I couldn’t remember where I got the directions. There are so many wonderful resources out there!
Jennifer Townshend
01:02:32
My district has a translation line that you can call to help you speak with families over the phone. Perhaps your district has this and you could communicate with just the family prior
Kathy Buclous
01:02:33
I have used Language Line for some sessions
Mary Chambers
01:02:48
our district uses language link
Nicole Washington
01:02:57
I'm in Ottawa Canada.
Rebecca Colagreco
01:03:14
I am bilingual but have had my ot and pt use the language lines
Kim Suvanto
01:03:27
Is there a family member that speaks the language that could help out.
Yvonne Franz
01:03:29
Google translate does well and it will speak it out for you
Lisa Maher
01:03:31
google translate has helped some of my coworkers
Nicole Washington
01:03:35
True!
Christine Griffin
01:03:37
I have made PowerPoint Presentations for my students during this time as I have not had a lot of response from my student's families.
Sandy Summers
01:03:46
Seeing Sadie and CVI is another good resource
Roxanne Ayres
01:03:50
I've been exploring the Talking Points program to translate emails and phone calls. https://talkingpts.org/

Ellen Eifert
01:08:33
Thank you so much for hosting this! Very helpful.
Danika Dunlap
01:08:35
A recommendation made to me that totally makes sense… I haven’t tried it yet… For the hearing user with CVI: Turn on Speaker View, so you only see one person at a time. The Brady Bunch image of so many moving people is a lot to process.
Mary Chambers
01:08:49
I also need to leave for a student. This has been very helpful, thank you!!
Ellen Eifert
01:09:17
Yes - I had to tell the Mom to switch to speaker vision in a zoom session with multiple specialists
Shannon Rustin
01:09:25
If you ask the parent to turn to speaker view do they see only the person talking?
Ellen Eifert
01:09:44
person speaking is bigger. the rest of the participants are small
Gwen Howard
01:09:52
This has been a wonderful meeting with so much fantastic information, thanks so much!

One suggestion on the Resource page is to share this link https://www.pathstoliteracy.org/topic/cvi, rather than just the CVI blogs on Paths to Literacy, as there are loads of strategies and resources as well.
