Brushing Teeth: Tactile Book

This tactile book uses real objects, words and pictures to sequence the steps in a toothbrushing routine for learners who are deafblind.

Perkins teacher Ira Padhye demonstrates a tactile book about brushing teeth that she has created for children who are blind or deafblind with additional disabilities.  In this 5-minute video presentation Ira shows how she breaks down the task into 5 steps, which helps the students to anticipate the steps in the sequence.
