Hi all,

I'm new here and just saw this board. I posted over in the nursery decorating area.

I have a baby girl who is 15 months old, however she will be forever 3 months old and is visually impaired.

It has been recommended by her VI specialist to do the room using red and black. I immediately thought of lady bugs.

I am going to paint one wall red with black polka dots on it (probably the wall her dresser/changing table will be on). Beyond that, I have absolutely no idea what to do with her room.

What are some things you have done for your kiddos?

Thanks in advance!!!

ETA: I guess I needed to add more about her diagnosis--my little darlin was injured just under a year ago, possibly by her mom (we're not sure), when she was just over 3 months old. She has a non-accidental brain injury, resulting in chronic hematoma with midline shift and retinal detachment. She has cortical blindness as a result and has epilepsy as well.

She has been with us since January, she has progressed so much more than we ever thought she would. Our goal is to create a room for her that will be interactive and soothing for.

Welcome, i am Jennifer, mommy to Alexis who is visually impaired (born with a condition called septo-optic dysplasia). What a strong mom you are for undertaking these challenges. This little girl is so lucky to have a family who loves her as much as you obviously do.

I am not sure what kind of suggestions to give you other than high contrasting colors, very simple designs, uncluttered walls, so they are not too busy and can be easily differentiated. The biggest thing would be high contrast, which is probably why her VT recommended black and red.

I don't know if this helps or not, but just wanted to welcome you to the board. If you have any other questions please feel free to ask. i am looking forward to getting to know you and your LOs better
