Perhaps some of the ladies here have heard of this, or have some suggestions. My gf's little boy is nearly five. He recognizes colors and can identify them ... MOST of them. That's the problem. She found that he consistently shuts down when faced with pink, yellow and orange. It is as though he cannot differentiate between then, and so guesses. She had him tested for color-blindness and the results were that he is NOT color blind. However, he is quite clever and could have guessed his way through that test. This boy has very good visual acuity so it's hard to believe he has a sight problem. My dd's cast is as pink as pink can be and when I asked him what color it was, he didn't hesitate one second. He said "I don't know ... yellow?? orange??." He didn't even offer anything like blue, green, brown, because he KNOWS those colors for a certainty. We were in a store at the time, and when he guessed yellow, I pointed to a yellow package and asked him THAT color and he guessed again ... and was wrong. Now here's the basic question. Do you think it's one of those developmental things that he will grow out of, or perhaps a vision deficiency that requires further exploration. Have any of the teachers here encountered children that presented the same difficulty, and what was the outcome, if so? Have you dealt with children that just don't see certain colors, whilst seeing most others? Kathe PS One of the reasons for the question is because this eye doctor they have has said some really wild stuff lately ... like that my gf's dd can stop wearing her glasses all day (SHE HAS ASTIGMATISM for goodness sakes !!!). We both wonder if he's a moron, or what LOL.
