Benefits of Positive Looking 2
Enables a child to develop positive strategies to access tasks. Offers scaffolding without being prescriptive. Recognises that progress in visual development is not linear. Provides the flexibility for planning personalised programmes to support individuals to achieve positive outcomes. Suggested ideas are over a broad age/ability range. But they can be adjusted to a child’s need.
Positive Looking 2 includes:
An overview of visual skill development. Ideas and visual skills activities. Examples of planned intervention sessions. Suggested goals, materials and resources.
The guide includes graphs to record progress. Example session plans and photographs of resource ideas suitable for each area.
Positive Looking 2 can be used in conjunction with Positive Looking 1
Training on how to get the most from Positive Looking 1 and 2 is also available.
Positive Looking 2 is an excellent product. Every member of our team has a Positive Looking 1 ‘kit’. We have made up packs of visual stimuli to accompany each visual skill. We use these on a daily basis during our visits, particularly with the babies and the children with complex needs and/or CVI. From this we can assess and record the stage the children are at. Then we set targets with strategies for parents/carers to follow up. It has given us a much clearer focus. Positive Looking 2 will continue with these skills and we hope to create similar packs to accompany each skill. So a huge THANK YOU for your excellent products. As a result, they are always resources we carry around with us. Often refered to and used on a regular basis and are not gathering dust on a shelf.
