Blind To His Color Blindness

| Edmonton, AB, Canada | Learning | March 30, 2015

(I am touring my son’s grade-three classroom during parent-teacher night. The walls are decorated with students’ landscape drawings, some of which have the child’s name printed on them and some don’t. I see a picture with the trees, grass, and sky depicted in colours not found in nature.)

Me: “That’s [Son]’s drawing, isn’t it?”

Teacher: “Yes, it is. How did you know?”

(Every year I write a note to his current teacher, explaining that he is profoundly colour-blind, but they never seem to pay any attention.)
