BLACK AND WHITE:
Does your child have low-level vision?
Does your child fail to respond to motion?
Does your child fail to respond to an object and/or color?
If you answer 'yes' then you might want to use black and white to stimulate vision for directionality. Getting attention to look towards your B+W card. That's it!
Never have a free-standing object, app, and/or area that is primarily B+W.
- Your child most likely will be stimulated but they are typically unable to look away.
- They cannot focus on a B+W, making it difficult to use binocular vision and/or convergence.
- There is no depth of field or depth perception when an area is being used for B+W.
Things to avoid:
Remember - your child's best and favorite toy is your face
