This video explains some of the practical aspects to creating a tactile book for children who have a vision impairment.

 

ClearVision is a charity. They run a postal lending library across the UK and Ireland, supplying children's books with added braille to families, schools, public libraries and Sensory Support Services, so children who are blind who can read with sighted friends and family, and braille-reading adults can read with sighted children. They also have a unique collection of over 1000 tactile image books, in which all the pictures are designed to be explored by touch.

The ClearVision Project are grateful to the Department of Publishing at UCLAN (University of Central Lancashire, for their time, facilities and expertise in producing this series of videos.
