Product Description:

Here's a revolutionary new product! How many times has your blind child wanted to draw a picture - just like his sighted friends? Or have you (as a teacher) ever needed to draw your visually impaired student a diagram that she can actually feel?

Our tactile drawing board is a simple and effective tool you can use to do both these things - and more. Basically, you just place a regular 8.5" X 11" sheet of paper into the frame on this specially-designed wooden board. Then, using an ordinary pen or Braille stylus, simply draw whatever you like - pressing firmly. Instantly, you'll be able to feel a clear outline of what you've drawn. And when you flip the page over, you'll have a perfectly-raised diagram on the reverse side - and every detail will easily be felt.

Never before has there been such an awesome raised drawing system available to the blind. Now, blind kids can draw pictures to their hearts' content; and, in seconds, parents and teachers can produce tactile diagrams of formerly "visual concepts". Perhaps best of all, you don't need any specialized, expensive plastic sheets or writing instruments to do it - thin copy paper or even thick Braille paper will work nicely!

Measures about 11 in. by 10 in. by 1/2 in.
