Bumpons are clear tactile "bumps" which can be used to mark various surfaces. They work well on both 3-D models and 2-D raised line drawings.
The set includes various sizes. The smallest is a little larger than a braille dot and the largest one is dome shaped and a little larger than a pencil eraser. The collection also includes a sheet of bumpons that are flat on top and a little larger than a dime in diameter.
As per the Exceptional Science Website, bumpons
- Peel off easily
- Adhere to any clean surface
- Can be located tactually
- They are convenient in that they can be used on top of print not obscuring the print.
- There are various sizes and shapes available which makes marking several items possible at the same time so that the student can differentiate them.
- None that I have noted.
There are 2 sets of bumpons available from Exceptional Teaching -- one for $24.95 and a set of 150 same size bumpons for $14.95. They are dome-shaped and slightly larger than a braille dot.
