Designing Tactile Books for Blind and Partially Sighted Children and Methods of reading to them promoting Conceptualization


Designing Tactile Books for Blind and Partially Sighted Children and Methods of reading to them promoting Conceptualization

Susanne Gudrun Sariyannis developed a concept for tactile books for blind and partially sighted preschool children, based on input from the "Tactile Road to Braille" by Dr. Markus Lang and the early intervention Centre at Schlossschule Ilvesheim as well as her own experiences in promoting her two blind children. Her new, creative ideas transform into a whole new generation of books.
