How can we identify working memory in persons with deafblindness? And how can we use this knowledge to help develop their potentials? This webinar gives tools to identify and assess tactile working memory in persons with deafblindness.
Working memory, or the ability to keep something in mind for a limited amount of time is a central function in cognition. For persons with congenital deafblindness we need a bodily-tactile perspective on working memory.
This webinar is based on our book Tactile Working Memory Scale – A Professional Manual, whish you can download, order or read online by following this link.
It gives a theoretical overview and presents a scale that can be used by professionals to identify and assess tactile working memory in persons with deafblindness, and design tools and strategies to ensure that these persons can develop and make use of all their potentials, both cognitively and linguistically.
The webinar and the manual is a result of the collaboration in The Nordic network on Cognition in Relation to Deafblindness .
