If your child was recently diagnosed with color blindness and you don’t know much about it, there are a few things you need to learn first.
Color blindness is also known as color vision deficiency, is the decreased ability to see color or differences in color. For example, for some colorblind people, a dark red ball could be seen as brown, or any purple object could be seen as blue.
Color blindness is very common, affecting more than 350 million people worldwide, 1 in 12 boys and 1 in 200 girls are colorblind. There could be at least one colorblind child in every classroom.
While there is no cure for colorblindness, we need to know about other alternatives to help our children. It’s not easy to explain color blindness to a 5-6 years old child in a good light, especially when most of the parents and teachers don’t know much about it. It’s very difficult to find products to help colorblind people in the long term.
- According to the research, 4 out of 10 colorblind students try to avoid schoolwork and activities involving colors, and nearly half are less interested in painting, drawing, nature walks, and field trips to art museums.
- Surveys showed more than 1 in 3 colorblind people said teachers got frustrated with them when they couldn’t understand schoolwork involving color.
- 1in 4 was teased by classmates or teachers due to being colorblind.
- Around the world, teachers and educators are unaware and uneducated about color blindness. Oftentimes, that causes color blind students to be labeled as having “learning difficulties” by teachers.
We live in the information age, by a simple search on google you can find thousands of results about color blindness. In social networks, people share their experiences and can answer your questions by giving you some tips and advice.
But the real problem is, a lot of the information on this topic is coming from outdated sources, or people’s experiences, which may not work for your child or be even harmful.
After hours of searching and reading the information on the internet, you can end up even more confused. We know, we’ve been there! We read all the comments, blogs, joined groups, and even went as far as reading the latest research papers – that’s how we know the information on the internet cannot be trusted.
