Both in Lithuania and around the world, a sensitive problem is becoming more and more apparent - people with visual impairments, especially children, lack professionally published paper books with touch illustrations. There are countless books for sighted children and a small selection for blind children. The circulation of books in Braille is very small, children's fiction books are usually without pictures and are only available in specialized libraries. The lack of paper books affects the reading of blind children, they no longer want to learn Braille and this writing is disappearing. Do you know? - that reading in Braille has a significant impact on the later lives of blind children. Sighted and blind children have to develop different senses at a certain age. Tactile activation is the part of the cerebral hemisphere that is responsible for the development of children's intelligence. Research has shown that Braille is the best way to help the blind develop a sense of touch. Conclusion: tactile publications play an important role in the development, advancement and further achievement of blind and partially sighted children by improving their understanding of language structure, logical communication and visual information, increasing literacy and having a positive impact on communication between the blind and the sighted.
