The Right Color Strategy Creates Order from Chaos for Back-to-School Season

TAMPA, Fla. - Floridant -- Back-to-school season 2023 gets a color makeover.

Rebekah Lane is an accredited color psychologist, working artist, and mother of three children under 10 -- including a special-needs child. She knows from scientific facts and her applications that parents can selectively use color to keep their kids organized, impact their moods, behavior, and school performance, and even improve their social lives.

Recent scientific research proves that color has an immediate/significant impact on human brain reactions and functions. Color impacts up to 90 percent of human reactions.

The first color babies see is red (at several weeks), and muted nursery colors are ultimately best for child development. Color sense evolves throughout the K-12 years and affects all aspects of brain function.

Color isn't just for young kids. When helping college-age teens decorate dorm rooms, parents can gear students' choices toward academic excellence and calm.

Says Lane, "I've studied the science of color for 20+ years and learned that what you see in your home and work/study spaces is as important, if not more important, than what you drink and eat and how the people interact with you."

Among her top five tips for using color to help your kids succeed are:
  1. Use color to identify categories of work quickly. For example, if math is always red and English is always yellow, you can use those colors in online tabs, file folders, notebooks, and pens and pencils. This can improve focus.
  2. Choose "calm colors" in places that might otherwise be stress-provoking.
  3. Encourage healthy eating habits by colorizing your kids' menus. However, avoid greens and blues in furniture around eating areas.
  4. Color plays a massive role in how people are perceived. Encourage children to wear colors that display their personalities to enhance positive interactions and to reflect their personalities through what they wear. If a uniform is an everyday practice, using color in accessories and backpacks is even more critical for personal identification and disposition.
  5. Reading comprehension increased by 80% in dyslexic children when using a blue or gray overlay on the page.
  6. While dark colors, like deep navy,  are best for calming down children, red or amber lights are the best for producing a restful state.  
Says Lane, "My 'color lab' is my own home.  I've proven this approach with my children and have seen huge changes in their behavior and school performance!"
