Lightbox Story Hour!

The Lightbox Story Hour is an interactive session for students who use lightboxes as part of their regular literacy and/or sensory efficiency programming. Live Story Hours were offered throughout the 2020-2021 school year and are now available by request via outreach services. Content for the lightbox stories is selected based on the student's interests and motivations, as well as what is known about their functional vision profile. It is intended for any student with a visual impairment that requires literacy materials be adapted on five key dimensions/visual features:

  • Colour
  • Contrast
  • Complexity
  • Size
  • Movement

For more information on the lightbox as a tool for literacy access and how to create your own story, please see this page on the Paths to Literacy site.
