My friend has a 3 year old who is visually impaired and is behind with her fine motor skills.

She has some threading beads but they are small (wooden ones from ELC) for her at the moment to be able to do.

Does anybody know where she could get some larger ones from?

What great links, I'm going to have to look at all of those properly.
A friend whose son has a visual impairment has told me more than once about the great stuff available from the RNIB. Has she tried there?

Don't know if they'd be suitable, but ELC do a jar of plastic cotton reels with a threading lace.
