Gwyn McCormack from Positive Eye has generously submitted a series of ‘Top Ideas’, which we will be sharing each month. You can read her introduction to the series and other posts here.
This specific series is centred around the importance of concept development when teaching children who have a vision impairment. The ‘Top Ideas’ can be utilised by your child’s educational setting or by a parent wanting to give a little extra help with learning from home.
Idea 20: Tactile Tractor Wheels Game
Image shows circles with different shapes and textures stuck in the middle.
Cut circles to fit the size of the circles on the Komplement IKEA hanger. Add an image of a tractor wheel and stick a different shape or texture in the centre of each wheel. Make the wheel tactile by making raised line version on Zyfuse for children with VI. Play matching, counting, pattern games. Teach pictogram and early concept of rows and columns.
Make the child with SEND the starting point for planning, NOT the ADD-ON
