The Learning Pillows are multi sensory integration activities designed for children. They are designed for educational experiences. The Pillows have tactile patterns of various textures and materials stitched or embedded into the fabric. The patterns utilize contrasting tactile and visual qualities which highlight directionality and spatial organization. Every object on the pillow has a word label contained in a story or poem included with each pillow. These items and their specific placement on the pillow surface offer a sense of organization for the child. White ric-rac is stitched to a black felt background to offer strong visual contrast. There are raised bumps and lines made of a substance called Slick (or glitter) pen which is non-toxic, brightly colored and readily adherent to the felt surface. At areas of the pillow corresponding to labels in the poem/story, the child may discover a button, zipper or bell. The placement of these objects also corresponds to conceptual learning goals for that particular pillow. The pillows may be used for pre-reading and pre-braille concepts. Children with blindness or low vision need additional sensory input to facilitate tactile discrimination and learning. Each pillow is designed to teach certain concepts: left to right, front and back, up and down, top and bottom, beginning and end, big and little, parts of a face, top of the head, and textures such as scratchy, smooth, soft, and slick. Story titles include: Mr. Bug goes for a Walk, Mr Bug Tries to Hide, and The King and His Closset. OPTIONS: Special low vision item called The Visual Hand Display is available. DIMENSIONS: 8.5 x 11 inches.
