Tactile Language Part 1: A circle model
How do we communicate with someone without using our vision or hearing? There are many ways for communication partners to support and help develop tactile language in a dialogue with a person with congenital deafblindness. This is the first lecture in a series of webinars during this spring. Once a month we present and discuss a chapter in the book If you can see it you can support it.
These five webinars are based on different chapter of our book If you can see it you can support it. They consist of theory, knowledge, tools, practical ideas, and tips on how to support and give the best opportunities for language development in a tactile modality, so that the person with congenital deafblindness is recognised as a human being using language.
Tactile language – a circle model
The model is intended as a dynamic tool that can be expanded in order to incorporate new elements as our knowledge develops or new perspectives emerge.
