Tactile Environment Mapping

Wheatley Tactile Diagramming Kit

The Picture Maker (Wheatley Tactile Diagraming Kit) is a fabulous tool to use for a number of things including creating tactile maps and diagrams. The velcro board comes with shapes of all different types that can be used for someone needing to learn their environment through orientation and mobility. It can also be used for students needing to feel diagrams for a science or math class just like their sighted classmates do visually.  This is a very useful tool for people of all ages and especially for school-age children.
