Developed in conjunction with specialist teachers in the field of visual impairment, the activities have been specially designed for use with children with low vision, including those with cerebral visual impairments and complex needs. It is an ideal tool to assess preferences and develop visual skills.
Big Bang Patterns contains four specially created sets of animated patterns, each containing twelve different animations, accompanied with a choice of music or sound effects.
These patterns have been designed to provide a range of visually stimulating activities with a choice of bold colours and movements including tracking, sliding and tunnelling.
Each of the four sets of patterns provides:
• Twelve varied animated patterns with music or sound effects.
• Where appropriate, the sound effects coincide with changes in the animation to give extra stimulus.
• Choice of eight background and foreground colours (choose black and white for a great visual impact).
• One touch option for maximum cause and effect.
• Two touch option - first touch for static pattern, second to animate.
