Cerebral (CVI)/cortical visual impairment is a decrease in the visual response due to damage or malfunction of the visual processing centers in the brain. While on the other hand, cerebral palsy (CP) is a permanent, nonprogressive disorder of movement and posture due to lesion of the infant's brain. This article presents a case study of a child with CP and CVI, and the strategies adopted in the Early Intervention program to that would work on the neuroplasticity. This in turn has demonstrated the improvement in the functional mobility, and the overall independence of the child.
