Light-Up Tracing Pad

Light-Up Tracing Pad Packaging

While I love APH's Lightbox Mini for use in aiding me in making a worksheet, color page, tactile, etc., the Light-Up Tracing Pad may become more used. As I need to be highly mobile, this tracing pad is lightweight and smaller. This will make those bags I carry in and out of campuses (and my home) so much lighter!

I bought mine at Wal-Mart for $19.97. I looked online and found them at other stores (including Amazon) for $23-$33. The ones at Wal-Mart were only in pink. Online there were other colors.

In case you've never made an image tactile, you place the image upside down on the lightbox or this tracing pad. Then, using a pencil, lightly trace the image...omitting items that might make the image too cluttered to read tactually. Once finished, use APH's Tactile Graphics Kit to manually make the image tactile.
