Teacher Reference Materials

The diagrams in this text show various views of anatomical systems. To simplify the reader’s task of interpreting the information presented in the tactile graphic, the body outlines have been adapted. The children are shown in two generic views: frontal view with face forward and frontal view with head turned to the side. Some views have been changed to present consistent reference points for the reader. It is recommended that the teacher ensure that the student understands the different body positions represented in the views. The student may need assistance in identifying a reference point for each graphic.
