Alert message

Diane: A child in phase 3 usually doesn't need movement as a cue at near, but targets presented at distance continue to be difficult to locate.  When expecting a student to attend to a distant target, add movement to attract visual attention.  So something bright like this with movement.  If you're trying to get their attention to a particular spot on the blackboard, shake something to get their visual attention.  Add some movement to try and get visual attention to distant targets.  Another example might be, when it's time for the pledge of allegiance in class and they can't locate where the classroom flag is, the teacher might give it a slight shake to attract visual attention.  The movement will help to cue them as to where they're supposed to be looking at distance.
