From the National Center on DeafBlindness: Learning & Instruction > Tactile Strategies
Individuals who are DeafBlind use touch to explore objects, to understand the relationship of those objects to their environment, to perceive feelings, to act and to communicate. There are various tactile communication methods and tactile language interventions. This section discusses those strategies and the relationship of touch to the communication and well being of persons who are DeafBlind.
