Reply To: Low vision student
I was also going to say wear something that contrasts the color of your baton (perhaps solid, darker colors). You could also attach a small battery powered LED light to the tip of the baton (something like the link below) or paint the baton with a florescent color (green/yellow or orange). If your student has trouble reading music or any other text in your classroom, consider printing white text with a black background, rather than black text with white background. This color scheme is better for individuals with low vision or even cognitive disabilities like dyslexia. In the same manner, a white baton against a black or dark background (whatever you’re wearing) would be ideal.
