Cortical visual impairment is caused when the brain does not process visual information in a meaningful way. While Feldenkrais cannot cure CVI it can improve the child’s ability to have functional vision by improving brain organization using movement and precise, gentle inputs. One child I worked with initially had such severe CVI that she did not respond to visual stimuli except for a small light in a darkened room. She had never visually recognized her mother but used sound to know when her family was near. After the first intensive she noticed her mother visually and used eye contact while smiling before her mother could say anything upon entering a room.
