Spatial Concepts II
If the child has severe low vision, development of spatial concepts can be enhanced by using "little rooms", as we call them in Scandinavian languages. These are boxes of different sizes, very small for a prematurely born tiny infant and larger for an infant at the age of a few months. Boxes for those children who remain at an early developmental level can be quite large. The infant or child needs to reach to both walls with arms and/or feet to be able to study them using his/her body as the measure stick. This box is made of a regular brown cardboard box. The upper flap has been removed, the side flaps are there so that the space can be almost closed if we want to give the child the experience of a small space.
