Positive Looking 2 is an excellent product. Every member of our team has a  Positive Looking 1 ‘kit’ where we have made up packs of visual stimuli to accompany each visual skill and 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 and 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 again for your excellent products – they are always resources we carry around with us, refer to and use on a regular basis and are not gathering dust on a shelf.
