Children and colour deficiency: Defects in colour vision are usually inherited and starts right after birth, thus children with this condition often learn to compensate. In other words, they learn to perceive contrast and brighteness and associate these variations with these colour names even if they cannot differentiate between certain hues.
Because most schools often use colour coded-teaching tools beginning from early grades, parents and teachers alike may mistakenly think that a child has a learning disability when in fact that child is colour-deficient, since many young people remain unaware of their disability throughout childhood. For good reason therefore, vision test is recommended in early childhood.
