The CVI Book Nook

The books on the CVI Book Nook site were initially created for students at Washtenaw Intermediate School District (WISD) who have visual impairments or who have CVI. Each book is the result of idea sharing and collaborative brainstorming among expert teachers for the visually impaired and material specialists. I am particularly grateful to WISD TCVI Jessicia Klenk for her constant inspiration. So many of these books began with an email from Jessicia stating, "I have an idea."  I also want to thank WISD material specialists Becky Starick and Janet Hassa for their constant positivity, and for making these books come alive in print formats.
