Abstract
In order to promote their growth, development and communication, young children who are visually impaired and have additional disabilities need to learn to use their sense of touch effectively and develop skills that are not necessarily based on the use of vision. This user-friendly book provides information about alternative communication as well as practical strategies and insights to create effective solutions. Topics range from how to assess a child's tactile skills, to how to interact effectively with children and plan interventions. A good resource for parents and families, communication experts, teachers, and early interventionists.
