Tactual Profile is an observation instrument for charting the tactual functioning of children with a severe visual impairment from birth to sixteen years old. The instrument concentrates on the tactual requirements that the everyday environment places on perception. Tactual perceiving and functioning are explicitly viewed in a broader sense than reading braille or understanding geographical maps or graphs. For example when a visually impaired child is playing with dolls, it has to know how to hold a spoon and be able to find the doll’s mouth in order to feed the doll.
