Last night my son let me know that he has a project due in a few weeks, and the project will be on color blindness, the causes and effects. This is something I've never looked into so I thought it would be cool to help out. I was pretty shocked when the second we were done with dinner he broke out his laptop and textbooks. 

After about an hour of Chris "hitting the books," he called me over for some help, he always has trouble wording his intro, then he is usually good to go! I asked him where he got his information from, and he showed me your page https://www.unimelb.edu.au/accessibility/wcag-2.0-aa/designer-style-guide/1.4.1-use-of-color Thank you! 

After I helped him with his wording, I decided to see if I could find some other pages that were liked yours, and I ended up finding this jackpot. The article goes in depth about all the signs and symptoms, the three major categories; causes and management. Chris was able to add in a new section on the different diagnosis and different types of Ishihara color tests. It was very interesting to learn right along with Chris, and this is defiantly his best paper yet. Chris said since both pages were extremely helpful, that you should add the one we came across https://online.maryville.edu/nursing-degrees/a-nurses-guide-to-assessing-color-blindness Chris defiantly benefited from all the different resources, and I think other kids or parents could too! 

Thanks again for all the help! 
Chris and Michael Rivers
