Love that Fish Tank!

fish tank

I just love fish tanks to build visual attention.  It provides access using educational programming matched to the assessment of a child who struggles to attend.  I place the tank in the optimal visual field.  I can position the child near the tank. It is backlighted.  It is moving slowly.  I can pick fish of highlighting colors. The fish stay in a confined area for long periods. I can chose dark backgrounds, sand and plant life as a contrast to the fish or place a black cloth across the entire back and have fewer, larger fish.

My students love this large yellow fish!
