Mini-Lite Box: Overlays

Designed to provide the ability to build visual complexity by adding one overlay at a time, individualizing each child’s needs.

The Mini-Lite Box Overlays are unique in that the parent or teacher may choose the level of visual complexity for each learner. Overlays can be used for instruction or assessment in color identification, shape identification, and counting. Individualize by adding layers for each student’s level of complexity

Using color, light, and increasing levels of complexity, the Mini-Lite Box Overlays can be layered for many different purposes.

Bright Shapes Knob Puzzles are acrylic puzzle pieces based on the shapes used in APH’s Light Box Levels I-III Kits. These puzzles have knobs to help with grasping — one of the targeted skills. Other targeted skills include hand-eye coordination, relational concepts such as in/out, directionality, shape and color recognition, comparison, and patterning. Although this kit will serve as a terrific puzzle set on its own, it is designed to be easily viewed on the APH Light Box. Educators, therapists, and parents will discover endless learning opportunities with these puzzles.
