Tactile Connections Kit: Symbols for Communication

This kit helps teachers create a tactile card system that is individualized for visually impaired and blind learners who have additional disabilities and/or lack a formal means of communication or literacy. The tactile symbols are created when part of an object is mounted on a hand-sized card representing core vocabulary categories (e.g. people, places, actions, objects, etc.). This kit provides some of the essential components that assist in a system's construction and application.


WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD — Small parts. Not intended for children ages 5 and under without adult supervision.
