All of the items requested benefit my students with visual impairments in achieving skills to improve their literacy skills. Using flashlights, lighted items, preferred colors and black backgrounds motivate students with visual impairments to use their vision. Covid exclusions and the reduced time spent in school, has disrupted the daily time working on these skills and has caused these students to regress. We are working on Reading Foundational (RF) skills to help our students gain the skills needed to read emergent-reader texts with purpose and understanding (RF.K.4). The items and books requested will help the teachers and aides engage these students more effectively. Research shows that students with Cortical Visual Impairments (CVI) require opportunities to use their vision daily in an active learning environment to increase their visual acuity. Engaging them with preferred color items, flashing lights and sparkly colors against a black background encourages and motivates these students to exercise their vision and engage in the content. For some students, using their vision is very difficult and tiring so using their preferred color and items to engage them in the learning increases their opportunity to gain literacy skills. The Jellyfish lava lamps change colors and can be used with multiple students to engage them to view their preferred color and strengthen their vision. Emerging reading and writing skills begin by getting their attention by using the flashlights to spotlight objects in the classroom and storybooks to increase communication. Black Aprons provide students the opportunity to see better in their environment by providing a black background to contrast what is being presented. Hexagonal touch lights encourage students fine motor skills which is a precursor to writing.
