Tactile graphics are educational tools for braille literacy.
Braille flashcards, embossed pictures, and tactile illustrations bring raised line drawings to life.

Creative Adaptations for Learning (CAL) creates and publishes innovative educational braille flashcards, embossed pictures, and tactile illustrations that bring raised line drawings to life.

CAL creates tactile graphics for children and adults with special needs; those who are blind or visually impaired, children who have dyslexia, autism, or may have a cognitive learning disability.

CAL Motto: Literacy is More Than Words

CAL Mission: Make pictures “visible” to people who are blind the way printed words are “readable” through braille.

Creative Adaptations produces educational materials that transform lifeless, two-dimensional print pictures into legible, three-dimensional pictures called CAL-tacTM illustrations. These unique haptic raised line drawings are:

  • Used by children, parents, teachers, therapists and caregivers
  • High quality and multi-textured
  • Interactive
  • Enjoyable to everyone — children to seniors, able or challenged
