UV

Ultra Violet Light, also known as UV and Black Light, is a highly visual medium that provides a dramatic eye-catching effect. We offer a whole array of UV, UV Responsive, and Neon toys and resources, providing captivating bright vivid colours, tactile textures and materials, to make your black light work focused, fun and interesting, both for one-to-one, and group work. We also recommend using our White Cotton Gloves to add fantastic dramatic effect under UV Black Light, to accentuate the hands and fingers, promote expression, signing, focus, and communication. Use of UV blacklight for play therapy sessions is perfectly safe as long as guidelines are adhered to.


SAFETY: We’re frequently asked; “is UV black light safe for children with special needs?” And, “what’s the recommended exposure time for children under UV black light?” Until recently little has been offered in the way of information on effects and guidelines. UV black light isn't harmful in small doses, so moderation is the key to using black lights safely. Whilst the permissible exposure limit for UV light is somewhat complicated to determine, the American Osteopathic College of Dermatology recommended half an hour or less. Protection is simple: cover up, as skin is generally protected by lightweight clothing, and it is recommended that the eyes should be protected at all times. These precautions will allow you to enjoy the positive benefits achieved during black light activities, but we would always advise you to seek professional advice with regard to health and safety.


BENEFITS: To encourage concentration, focus, visual processing, visual perception, visual input, tracking, increasing hand-eye co-ordination, motor skills and development, tactile awareness, encourage success, calm and distract negative behaviour, open discussion and encourage participation and social skills, and provide visual challenges.
