Alert message

Our phase III case study is a young man named Ian.  Ian has a diagnosis of CVI due to traumatic brain injury that happened 8 years prior to this CVI assessment.  According to his eye report, he has no interfering ocular conditions. 

Ian has pretty typical social and language skills, though he does at times have difficulties with word recall.  He’s had a hard time with reading since his accident, and currently uses a calendar with pictures supported by verbal reinforcement.  He’s a pretty easy going guy for the most part.  He does not think of himself as visually impaired.

Maneuvering through space is challenging for him due to motor impairment on one side.  Oral motor skills were also affected and this, paired with the fact that Ian is rather soft-spoken, can make understanding his speech challenging.
