Events, Holidays, and Special Trips
Tactile symbols representing events, holidays, and special trips are rectangular shapes that can be made from poster board, or light-weight plastic. They are colored yellow, but this may be changed based on the needs of your student. For example, they may be able to see another color better if they have some usable vision. Just remember, touch is the sense primarily in use so the texture of the material should be distinct.
This symbols are the ones utilized at Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired, so they reflect that social environment. You may need to create symbols or adapt symbols specific to the environment of the student.
