Make a Tactile Tank Top
Encourage your child’s tactile exploration with this sensory tank top
A very young child with a visual impairment often holds their hands close to their body because they haven’t yet learned to reach out and explore their environment.
A tactile tank top is a fun way to encourage tactile exploration because they don’t have to reach very far to find something interesting to touch. They’re wearing it on the tank top!
Unlike a tactile blanket, a tactile tank top can be used when your child is seated or lying on their back so it’s more versatile.
Be sure to supervise your child when they are wearing the vest. Do not use small items that can be choking hazards in case your child is able to pull them off the vest.
