So exited to report that Little Bear Sees has done it again with a new app My Talking Picture Board - Little Bear Sees for our kiddos with CVI. Check it out!!!! If you are not familiar with Little Bears Sees then please check out their website http://www.littlebearsees.org/ . As far as I know they are the only organization making apps for our little ones with CVI. Their original Tap-n-See Zoo - Little Bear Sees is still one of my favorites for our young ones with cortical vision impairment.
This blog is designed to document infants/toddlers with disabilities using an iPad to promote their development. I hope to show how this new technology can help children with disabilities develop their communication, play, pre-literacy, cognitive, visual/auditory and motor skills.

My 10 Favorite Apps for Children with CVI
I have been asked by numerous people to post my personal favorite lists and it is very difficult for me to pick my favorites because each child is different and I use different apps for different kids but I have narrowed down 10 that use the most with infants and toddlers with cortical vision impairment. I work in WV Birth to Three as a developmental specialist and vision specialist for infants and toddlers with CVI. So this list is in no particular order:
These are probably the apps I go to most for infants and toddlers in late phase 1 and phase 2. I have other suggestions for children in phase 3. For infants and toddlers in early phase 1 I typically only use the free lightbox type apps along with the free flashlights. Hope this helps and would love your suggestions.
