APH Light Box - Full size

The following description is from the APH Website and gives information on how the Light Box has been recently improved. 
 
When used with unique sets of materials, APH's Light Box and Mini-Lite Box help develop awareness of light, color, and objects. 
 
APH's light boxes are unique devices that help students utilize their residual vision. When used with unique sets of materials (designed by APH)  APH's Light Box and Mini-Lite Box help develop awareness of light, color, and objects. Light boxes assist in the instruction of tracking, scanning, eye-hand coordination, visual discrimination, and visual perceptual skills.
 
This newly revised Light Box has a lighted translucent white work surface, providing a high contrast background for opaque materials and a source of illumination for colored transparent and translucent items. Includes dimming control to meet the needs of individual students.
 
Can be used flat or tilted at three angles. Built-in ledges hold overlays in position. Cool, fluorescent bulb is housed in a tough plastic body measuring 25 x 15 x 5 inches. Includes cover.
