Being blind myself, I have found a product that comes in handy for both blind and visually impaired children. The product is from MaxiAids and is called Braille Only Alphabet Stickers and comes with 676 alphabet stickers. Although they are called "Braille Only " they have a raised embossed alphabet letter as well as the corresponding braille letter under it. They can be very useful in labelling different items or even just introducing braille to a newly blind child and are tactile. They can also be used on items to distinguish between two things, for example putting a letter S on a bottle of shampoo, and a C on a bottle of conditioner. They have many uses and can be used by children and adults alike.

Thank you for sharing this idea, Elizabeth! I have added a photo and a link to where they can be found on the MaxiAids site.
We would be interested to hear any other ideas on how the rest of you use this product.
I am sorry to anyone reading this strategy, due to the fact that I am totally blind, I cannot take a picture of this item without the help of a sighted person, but I am sure there are images of it on the MaxiAid website, and I hope you can enjoy it all the same. :)
