Books for the development tyflography "Cvicebnica z tyflografiky"

In Slovakia three exerzise books for the tactile education of blind children were developed.

The Slovakian tactile education program consists of three exercise books. The Images are printed on foil. Every volume has a methodological handbook in wich parents and teachers are guided how to work with the material. All books are based on the authors* personal professional experience. The books can also be used in work with children with multible handicaps.

- distinguish between different and the same shapes

- use of geometric shapes as elements of more differenciated images

Each picture in the book is shown twice. The first page shows the picture with raised tactile lines and on the second the lines are like graved. So the child can feel the lines on the first page like a pattern and can follow them with the pencil on the second page. The drawings start by simple lines and shapes and become more differenciated page by page up to pictures.
