Should I Use Black and White for Vision Development?

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.
  1. Your child most likely will be stimulated but they are typically unable to look away.
  2. They cannot focus on a B+W, making it difficult to use binocular vision and/or convergence.
  3. There is no depth of field or depth perception when an area is being used for B+W.


Things to avoid:

  • Mobile
  • Playmat or carpet
  • wall
  • un-attended viewing (leaving your child alone)
 
Remember - your child's best and favorite toy is your face

Immature Vision vs. Mature Vision - How to Improve Vision and Movement

Here, Felipe shows you the difference between immature and mature vision

  • Immature vision is when the head moves with the eyes. 
  • Mature vision is when the eyes can move independently from head movements. 
  • At 12-14 months, a child should have mature vision.

If a child does not have the ability to express mature vision at this age, it is a sign that they will start to have (or are experiencing) deviations in movement development. 

Deviations in movement development can lead to developmental delays, if not addressed. 

That being said, in my Cognitive Vision Training, I show you how you can identify your child's movement deviations that are being caused by their immature vision. 

Then I show you how to start teaching your child mature vision skills. 

Typical children, like the girl in these pictures, who haven't fully developed their mature vision have a short attention span, and it's hard for them to focus on things for long periods of time.

Facts About Eyes and Vision - Vision and Development Correlelation

Are the Eyes Fine? 

 
We shouldn't worry about vision.
 
The eyes just see. It's that easy. Well, not so fast!
 
Not only should the eyes see - they need to complement every movement in your child's body.
 
 
The body's structure might be unable to respond to the toy or your voice = so the eyes to learn to be included with the conversation.
 
The eyes might be the best feature in your child's life, so they move into all sorts of positions, which might look like 'lack of head control' just to see you.
 
The one phrase you want to hear from your child's ophthalmology visit is your child's "eyes are fine."
 
However, just because the structure of your child's eyes are good, doesn't mean that they have the tools needed for successful vision.
 

There are three key areas to be evaluated for your child's ultimate vision:

Your child's visual surrounding can be too cluttered or complex for them to have successful...
