Understanding Tactile Communications

How do you communicate when you have low sight and hearing?

This fascinating session will explore options for communicating beyond words; Socio Haptic Communications and Tactile Transition.

We will consider how to convey complex messages about the environment, situation and atmosphere and how someone who is deafblind can get a detailed understanding of the world around them. Can understanding the whole-body tactile experience support this? Can it help to regulate energy, deal with stress, support clearer communication?
