Tactile Skills Matrix: Symbolic Understanding

The following APH products build Symbolic Understanding by demonstrating how objects and things in the real world are sometimes represented by abstract tactile drawings or symbols. Note: Products without a hyperlink to APH’s shopping site have been obsoleted, but original copies might still be available to some teachers for continued use with their students.

Do you have other recommendations for products that build SYMBOLIC UNDERSTANDING? Share your ideas with Karen J. Poppe, Tactile Literacy Project Leader, at kpoppe@aph.org as she continues to update this Tactile Skills Matrix.
