Hello List: 
I  am looking for research that addresses the effectiveness of tactile 
graphics  and three dimensional models as educational materials. Of course I  
that tactile graphics and models are valuable, but has their  usefulness 
actually been studied? I have been searching with Google, and so  far, haven't 
usable information. Thank  you.

Hello Robert,
Of course you are right! There is much anecdotal evidence about the value  of 
Tactile Graphics.  I suggest you talk with Steve Landow from Touch  Graphics, 
Inc., to see if he has any information on current research.   National 
Braille Press is currently investigating the subject, funded by a grant  from 
Reader's Digest Foundation.  We are consultants for the project.
Hope this is helpful.
All the best,
