When trying to encourage students who have some amount of vision to use it, it’s helpful to have reinforcers: positive activities or items that incent the student to use the vision they have. Tactile stimulation is one such reinforcer. This activity will help teachers discover which tactile sensations produce a positive response in the student. Lessons include Orientation and Mobility.
