Using a Tactile Map with a 5-Year-Old Child in a Large-Scale Outdoor Environment
Renshaw, Rebecca L.; Zimmerman, George J.
RE:view: Rehabilitation Education for Blindness and Visual Impairment, v39 n3 p113-121 Fall 2007
The authors constructed an 11 x 17 in. tactile map to teach routes in an outdoor play environment to a 5-year-old blind child. After learning the routes on the tactile map, the child independently navigated them in the outdoor play environment. With practice, the child reduced the time necessary to learn and navigate the routes. The authors identify some concerns about the design of the project and suggest ways in which future researchers could resolve those issues.
