Diane: While a child in phase 3 looks at more colors and patterns, favored colors may still be used to attract visual attention.  This can be compared to how most people are visually drawn to, say, a yellow highlighted sentence. It catches your eye.  Bright favored colors can be used in many ways, particularly in the educational setting.  When teachers are wanting students to write their name on a specific line, they might use a yellow highlighter to mark where the child is to write their name.  It's an eye-catching color. They might also use highlighter tape when they want to stick it down and bring it back up.  Highlighter tape in either red or yellow works really well.
