What would also, be good would be tests included in the activity to help
detect color blindness, dyslexia and other common vision issues that affect
kids ability to read/learn.  My one son had a hard time learning to read
and it took us a while to find a doctor who could diagnose the issue.
 Turns out he would occasionally see two fingers when we held up one and
things would sometimes "shake".  He was bright otherwise so he had coping
mechanisms, but it would have been good to catch this earlier, as there
were a simple set of exercises that helped correct the issues and improve
his reading.
