The soft, even glow from our light box transforms objects
and can stimulate in children a sense of beauty and wonder. Children
are drawn to the light and calmed, especially those who are easily
distracted or impulsive. Some children with visual impairments like
to draw, read, and write on the light screen because they can see more
easily with the light under the paper.
"The task is to help children 'dematerialize'
light and color until they feel it inside and outside themselves,
to blend colours
together and distinguish them, to appreciate the relationship between
them and the effects they create."
Corrado Costa, The Hundred Language of Children, Reggio Emilia
