The Visual Assessment Scale (VAS CVI-PIMD) is an instrument that delivers an objective assessment of the visual functioning of persons with PIMD. The VAS can answer the question if, and in what degree, there can be spoken of CVI (abbreviation of Cerebral Visual Impairment) in children and adults with profound intellectual and multiple disabilities (PIMD).
The VAS CVI-PIMD is an objective and standardised assessment of the visual development of
children with PIMD which monitors the development and provides the possibility to register progress and measure the effect of intervention.
The VAS is designed for professionals with thorough pedagogic/therapeutic knowledge and with specific comprehension of the development of visually impaired children and of persons with multiple intellectual and visual impairments.
