The visually stimulating images can be displayed in a continuous sequence or can be used as part of early switch activities.
There are ten basic images which range in complexity from simple, block images to detailed line drawings.
Back and foreground colours can be changed, so providing a valuable assessment tool for the determination of visual preferences and contrast sensitivity.
The black and white option should prove particularly useful for children with very low vision and for those whose visual development is at a very early stage.
The optional sound can be used to encourage activity, but can be turned off for determining whether vision is being used.
Uses with other learners
- children who experience difficulty with attention may find the images interesting and motivating
- printed images can be used for colouring and cutting to develop manipulative skills and hand-eye coordination
- descriptive language can be developed via association with the images and their development
- movements created on the screen can be replicated in dance and drama sessions
