Heads Up! Frame – 4 x 9

Our own creation, these frames are made of transparent colored polycarbonate with a frame printed on. The frames are available in 4” x 4-½” squares or 4" x 9” rectangles. You can direct attention and focus by placing the frames over workbook pages or other written materials to be examined. The frames block in key material while the color contrast helps maintain attention.

When looking back at the page they can easily and quickly find the framed-in area. These frames are also useful for the child who feels overwhelmed when viewing an entire page, since the teacher can frame in just a section of the page so that it appears more manageable to the child. Available in the following colors: yellow, pink, blue, red, green, and orange.

Seeing Clearly, Hickman & Hutchins

Developing healthy visual-motor abilities is more difficult in the complex stimulus of today's world than ever before. Our visual experiences can be overwhelmed by the vast complexity of artificial colors and sounds which did not exist in our ancestors' lives.
Much more time is spent indoors, exposed to a myriad of unnatural colors, movement and imagery. We hibernate inside, interacting with machines instead of being out in the sunlight, looking at the far horizons, exploring  natural environments. More and more time is spent sitting rather than moving, watching rather than doing. Here is a book that has:
An overview of the development of vision, with a checklist of warning signs of vision problems-based on the studies of behavioral optometry
A discussion of the importance of integrating all the senses equally in the development of optimal visual skills, rooted in the field of occupational therapy
Practical, playful activities designed to improve visual skills in both adults and children. Excellent for use at home, in the clinic, at school, or amid outdoor settings

Visual Strategies for Improving Communications, L Hodgdon

This book is a collection of practical ideas and techniques: how some educators have taken sound theory and research, added a
dash of creative experimenting, and translated it into meaningful training and programming tools for students who experience
moderate to severe communication disabilities.
When we take on the task of working with students who learn differently, our most familiar teaching strategies and goals are put
to the test. Students can learn. The question is what and how. Our responsibility as professionals or parents is, in part, one of
"discovering" them. Most importantly, we need to discover how he learns; how she understands. That is the key .... to determine
what is inside, hidden behind a veil of behaviors and perceptual handicaps, and to discover how to reach it effectively. This discovery
process has revealed a large group of students who understand what they see better than what they hear.
It is through this discovery process that the concept of using Visually Supported Communication or Visually Mediated Communication
strategies has evolved and developed. Success has built upon success. As one student or teacher has benefited from one idea,
the challenge has been to develop a second and a third. Over a period of several years the results have been dramatic. Testimonials
from school staff and parents have supported the direction enthusiastically.
