Lighting the Way with Light Box Material Sets
The Light Box has been a very popular APH product for many years and it has recently been revised to be both lighter and brighter! The Mini-Lite Box is also available as a smaller, lighter and more affordable option. The high contrast background provided by a light box's illuminated surface makes a variety of visual tasks easier to perform. No matter which light box you choose to use, APH has developed many visually stimulating materials that can be used in conjunction with it. Three different levels of Light Box Material sets can be obtained using federal quota funds.

Light Box Materials: Level II is focused at ages three through five-years-old and helps in teaching matching and identification skills, part-whole relationships, sequencing, pattern duplication, spatial relationships, and visual memory skills.
