Higher Visual Function (HVF) in Individuals with Cerebral Visual Impairment (CVI)
We are currently recruiting children and adults with Cerebral Visual Impairment (CVI) to participate in a telephone study about Higher Visual Function. The brief vision and birth history, plus the 52 question HVFQI takes between 1-2 hours and can be completed by video chat (zoom) or by phone. Participants receive $20/hour of their time. Cerebral visual impairment often affects higher-level visual function (HVF); for example, spatial attention, motion perception, divided attention, etc. Such impairments sometimes are not easy to detect by a routine vision test. Nevertheless, parents may observe some unusual behaviors in the daily living tasks of their child that can be explained by deficit in HVF. Here, we set to run a question inventory (QI) filled by parents to better understand the effects of CVI on a child and how it may correlate with other factors.
