Enticing Reach

This preschooler has been practicing her use of a large pressure switch Big Red to listen to her favorite books.  Of course, it takes a lot of practice to gain accuracy in reaching the switch and becoming more independent.

Due to her limited vision, I'm thinking I should put some textured material on the switch, to give her more information about where her hand should be aiming.  After all, her smooth wheelchair tray might feel about the same as the surface of the switch.  I could even put a tiny stuffed animal which relates to a character in the book.
