When light passes through our cornea (transparent eye surface) to your pupil (the opening to the inside of your eye) it reaches our lens, which focuses it on your retina (the back of your eye), where it’s converted into a nerve signal and carried by the optic nerve to your brain. Now this connection system creates memories in our nervous system. These memories are then co-related to the other body parts in order to generate motion and perform tasks. That’s why this company has created “Baby Visual Stimulation Cards“, some design cards that train vision in early childhood and guide your baby through their first few years of visual discovery..
An early development of child’s cognitive and non-cognitive domains at this stage is vital for an improved academic attainment, productivity and social functioning in adulthood. During this period, it is essential to keep the kid in an environment which offers stimulation for the brain thanks to an array of interesting things to do, see, hear and touch.
By providing children strong visual stimuli we can facilitate faster mental development. Around five months of age, children’s sight has reached the point where they can tell the difference between two shades of the same color. Appropriate visual stimulation for newborns is the best way to help extend tummy time. It also teaches the muscles of the eyes and the brain to coordinate and function properly.
So how do these design cards that train vision in early childhood work?
There are three most commonly used methods that are mostly recommended and used by parents around the globe that is with high contrast toys & books, then using a mirror in order to let them register their own actions and observe them and lastly flashcards. While flashcards are a great tool for right brain development, they also provide visual stimulation. Cards must be shown quickly to the baby one by one. Each card is shown only for 3 seconds. This rapid change tends to capture your baby’s attention very well.
These design cards that train vision in early childhood provide a variety of sets for the growing child. They have 4 different collections of images for each different age group based on the expectations of the vision and its development stage.
Stages of Vision Development:
0-3 months: A newborn’s vision is relatively fuzzy. At first, the baby is able to see light, movement, and general shapes in their immediate surroundings. That’s why this set provides black and white, high contrast patterns and object cards to improve visual distance.
3-6 months: During the first few months of life a babies develop the ability to focus both eyes and track moving objects. Color differences become clearer on average from two months. That’s why this set provides black and white, with basic colors (red, yellow, blue) to help the baby adjust to seeing colors around him/her.
6-12 months: During this period, a baby’s depth perception starts to develop, allowing to tell how far away he/she is from a toy for example. Meanwhile, he/she is gaining more control over arms, creating a powerful combination. By eight months, your child’s vision is almost as acute as an adult’s. Longer distance sight further develops, allowing children at this age to identify objects and individuals across the room. This set features abstract pieces with various colors to stimulate imagination and brain-eye coordination.
12-36 months: Depth perception has fully developed at this age. A one year old can tell the difference between “near” and “far”. That’s why this set includes pictures of concrete objects with various colors, to better understand our world.
In a World where visual content and screen time are more and more crucial issues it is important to take care of the ability to use and train this skill. And these design cards that train vision in early childhood are a good way to foster this crucial ability. Not the only one but definitely a good way to start!
