Welcome to our website where you will find lots of information about The CVI Project and the people working on it.

CVI stands for Cerebral Visual Impairment – find out more in the ‘What Is CVI?’ link in the menu.

In September 2019, we launched our study to find out if a new intervention to support children with CVI makes a difference to their well-being.


We preparing results papers from the feasibility study and will post them as soon as they are accepted. Please see our Publications page for the outputs so far including a YouTube video summarising the study results

We would love to hear from you, whether you are a child/young person with CVI, or their parent, or a teacher, or a Learning Support Assistant, or a therapist eg OT or Physio or SaLT, or a QTVI or a  visioncare professional or a Paediatrician, or have an interest in CVI from any other perspective.
Thank you for reading this update!

We are preparing a funding application to continue this work to try to help children with CVI. If you would like to be involved and advise us, as part of our “PPI” (Patient and Public Involvement) group, please email cvi-project@bristol.ac.uk and we will be in touch in the autumn.
