Lightbox for CVI

Improved Visual Motor: Self Feeding

From our CVI assessment, we understand how important light is to Julie, age 10.

Julie enjoys eating and will finger feed completely without looking.  She finds the food using her tactile skills only.  It will be impossible to move to increase her eating skills using a fork or spoon if she is not looking at the visual target of the pieces of food.

When the lightbox is used with a clear plastic plate, Julie alerts, looks to the pieces of popcorn and sustains gaze while looking and reaching!  Her reach is direct, targeted and accurate to the popcorn. Just wonderful to see this immediately!

(We ordered a large, clear plastic tablecloth that we can cut up to protect the lightbox).

Lightbox available free through American Printing House for the Blind if your child is registered as legally blind.  Ask your TVI to order it for you!
