    is produced by musical instruments hearing can cause perception of colour sight We may conclude that synesthesia recognizes senses as elements that cooperate with one another Synesthesia manifests itself at different levels and its purest form is very rare The later is perceived automatically as a perceptive phenomenon and not a cognitive one it s an unconditional reflection of perception Synesthesia is not something one can imagine it is perceived a true synesthete is capable of naming associations between senses in a very easy manner and above all they can remember them perfectly as time goes by Most synesthetes interpret their gift in a very positive manner taking advantage of all the possibilities it can give them Nevertheless in all people we can find the synesthetic capability more or less present of perceiving at a cognitive level capability which is often times conditioned by culture and teachings or daily experiences For example when we speak of cold light we generally are capable of imagining the possible reasons for which we associate a specific colour to a cold sensation Synesthesia in cases like these bases itself on memorization of certain data which corresponds to a series of conventions social agreements cultural

    further elements and will correspond to the more acute sound The contrary would happen for the darker tones Another example for the development of the bi dimensional recognition is to ask the child to draw something in relief while listening to the colours they choose This can also be done through collage of various colourful materials Curiosity It may happen that blind children tend to isolate themselves and many a time this is caused by lack of stimuli it is essential that the child s curiosity be enhanced The risk is that many useful elements of knowledge may be left out from the child s personal development holding them back from an independent adaptation to society The objective is that to find strengthening answer of compensation an active child who tries compensating the absence of sight with other learning methods is the key to a successful development One of COL diesis objectives is to stimulate blind children s curiosity and thirst towards knowledge An object that produces sound thanks to its colour not only pushes the child to extend to their hands in search of the object sound but also it allows them to have the courage to discover reality and situations that surround them Desire of independance Blindness forces the affected person to reorganize their reality using other means of perception different from their eyes equally capable of elaborating information from the world The development of personal organization of reality is essential for the blind person s sense of independence The colour sound code chosen by the child is very personal and this allows them to develop certain independence The user will be able to create combinations of sound according to their own sensitivity following their emotions and choices The fact that the child is pushed to physically search for object sounds will give them a sensation of greater independence too Memory development For the blind memory is a fundamental tool used to remember where objects streets places etc are located The development of memory is an essential aspect that blind people need to work on for their independence In this case COL diesis gives the affected person an infinite amount of combinations between sound and colour that can help exercise their memory Music and the study of musical notes has the capacity to capture and to maintain a child s attention and this is valid especially when talking about blind children who use hearing as the strongest tool in order to calm his thirst for knowledge The games played to reinforce memory begin with the simple recognition of the sound colour combinations and grow in difficulty when reaching more complex musical note combinations For example a music therapist can ask the child to listen to different object sounds and to subsequently put them in a certain order After mixing up the objects the child will be asked to repeat the order the objects were initially in Or the music therapist can ask the child to listen to a

    sound substitutions to the inability to understand or use language or oral movement functions in order to speak or in feeding People with speech and vocal impediments can find difficulty in controlling the sound of their voice COL diesis can help by creating a colour sound sequence that the user will have to repeat vocally In this way the user will begin to reinforce their control over their voice Secondly the user can begin to recognise sounds with the help of colour and to learn musical notes they will gradually introduce monosyllabic words like DO RE etc Slowly more notes will be added and the rhythm will increase In the end a song can be created with the help of a music therapist 3 Attention Defecit Hyperactivity Disorder Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is a condition that causes the affected person to have great difficulty in staying still and o control their conduct or to pay attention These problems can be detected before the child turns seven although often enough these behaviours can be ignored until much older There are three main signals that help detect AD HD difficulty in paying attention tendency to be hyperactive tendency to act before thinking The person that is affected by AD HD has great difficulty in organizing jobs or games They lose interest immediately and often lose or misplace things Since they are hyperactive it is very difficult for them to sit still on a chair or to think before acting People with these kinds of problems need to live in a very positive ambience where they can find approval at doing something properly reinforcing their ability and potentials Certain clear rules must be established with a program of compensation for good conduct Rules and clear routines help on a school level It is also very important to push the chills to play very active games where they can move and use up energy These characteristics can be worked on with a music therapist The child can learn to relax with music and concentrate more Any kind of game that implies short periods of concentration can help but COL diesis can also be used while following a chart where the child s chores are represented Each chore or positive conduct corresponds to a colour that the child will add to the chart Once the chart is completed the child realizes that they have created a song 4 Learning problems Learning problems indicate a disorder in one or more basic physiological processes that have to do with the comprehension and use of language oral and written that can be noticed on the imperfect inability to listen think speak read write spell or calculate It can also include problems such as cerebral damage minimum functional problems in the brain dyslexia development aphasia 5 Mentally Challenged Mentally challenged people are affected by a significantly low intellectual functioning if compared to the average person This coexists with deficits in adaptive conduct and it manifests itself during the child

    it in their own personal way These impressions and interpretations are united between themselves and they create a reality of images that in a way can be considered similar to the ones belonging to the sighted Blind people depend on the memory of impressions and sensorial perception Memory in fact allows them to create a reality with very strong foundations based on personal knowledge of reality For example in Cristian s case blind from birth red represents the warmth of a sun set on your skin For another blind person according to the researcher John Locke red is represented by the sound of a trumpet Colour recalls not only visual sensations but also tactile and sound sensations Colour also plays a part in psychology Tests have been run on sighted and blind children where they were asked to lay down and listen to the name of various colours It was interesting to notice how the children all moved slightly when they heard the colour red colour which represents energy whereas they stayed very still when listening to the colour green In other words the blind children were able to recognise colours thorough personal interpretation although this interpretation is in any case conditioned by common aspects and culture The data which was collected regarding perception of colour according to the blind was very interesting and produced results that are worth taking into consideration To define visual perception only as visual is not enough we must keep in mind that this type of perception does not only form thanks to visual impressions but also with the help of all the other sensorial perceptions combined This is what allows the blind to create personal images these images are the result of a knowledge which is acquired through touch hearing smell and taste These

    through scientific and technological research The team studied a device whose main objective on a technological level was to detect colours and transform this data into musical notes following a recognizable scheme This part can be divided into three sections The electronic part through a colour sensor the device could detect colour and recognise it s RGB values The programming part colours were classified in groups which once programmed in the device permit an easy access to the available options and the simple recognition of colour through music The simulation on computer the possibilities of the device are created as a computer version All these studies have reached a conceptual level as we await the possibility to realise an existing prototype COL diesis is composed of two main parts the ring and the bracelet It has been designed in order to cover aspects of ergonomics lightness and straightforward use Optic fibre represents the means through which the device is able to receive information on the colour White light leaves the TX cable to illuminate the colour The colour is reflected and the RX cable receiving fibre perceives it sending it back to the bracelet to be processed The device is small ergonomic and light guaranteeing easy transportation The bracelet is positioned around the user s wrist It is considered essential for some of the objectives of this project that the user can move freely weather they re in a closed environment or outdoors COL diesis has been studied so that the user is never attached top a machine or computer through cables or impeding elements The dimensions of the device are small guaranteeing aspects of lightness and mobility the bracelet functions with batteries avoiding in this way any existence of cables The device is supplied with earphones that allow isolation
