Alert message

Diane: Visual attention to distant targets for a child in phase 2 may extend beyond near space, and sometimes up to four to six feet away.  This is especially true if the target is moving.  The general rule of thumb would be to present objects at near, then with highly motivating targets, slowly move them back to practice distance viewing.  A red blinking cup like this might be a highly motivating target for a child in phase 2.  This could be placed up to four feet away, and in the student's best field of view.  Remember to watch for contrast as well.  Use the student's preferred color and the cup's blinking capability will help to draw their visual attention.
