with Diane Sheline, Independent Consultant,CTVI, CLVT.

Diane: I would like to say again how important it is for early diagnosis and intervention to occur particularly with infants and toddlers functioning in Phase 1.  The idea that our brains are not hardwired but can be strengthened when encouraged is extremely important here.  When there's careful assessment and use of correct strategies and techniques which encourage use of vision, we are often able to see improvement in how the child uses his vision.  Therefore, they are better able to develop, learn, and make progress in the educational environment.  I'd like to thank all of my students, their parents and caretakers, and my colleagues for their suggestions, time, and patience giving me the opportunity to learn about what works with this great group of kids.
