Innovation and illumination go hand in hand. Many students learn best visually, so this grant request from Special Education professionals funds innovative tools – portable light boxes and tabletop light boards – to enhance the learning experience for visually impaired children, as well as offering better accessibility to teaching materials for physically impaired students. The lighted surface can also draw in those easily distracted, helping them to focus on the task at hand, including open play, academic learning, sensory integration, and scientific discovery. These portable, easy to transfer lighted surfaces can be used with translucent manipulatives and will be available to any student with an IEP.
