Lukas recently turned 4 (Happy Birthday!) and it seems we have a new birthday tradition for our Little Bear!
In a past article we discussed the appeal of aquariums to kids with cortical visual impairment (CVI). At the time, we were limited to the lovely, but small, Waikiki Aquarium as we were living in Honolulu.
Now that we’ve relocated to California, however, Lukas has discovered the wonder that is the Monterey Bay Aquarium! Their jellyfish tanks in particular are simply stunning and PERFECT for Lukas! The visual simplicity, movement, light and bright colors all lend themselves to creating the ideal environment for kids with CVI.
We’ve made the trek down there the last two years to celebrate his birthday and I suspect we will for many years to come. Nothing like seeing a smile on your child’s face as he actually looks at something!
We’d love to hear about some of your favorite aquariums.
