Create an Adapted Book: The Shape Surprise

Flower made of shapes and attached with velcro to book

This adapted book is designed for preschool-age children who are deafblind or visually impaired with additional disabilities.  It focuses on teaching colors and shapes, and allows the students to interact with the book, by removing and adding shapes, which are attached to the page with velcro.  There is a fun surprise at the end!
