 – Contact Communication and Learning

Resources and training material about children who are deafblind are all too rare. The principles of contact, communication and learning are fundamental; they apply to us all. The process of putting these same principles into practice with children who are deafblind can be complex, incremental and challenging. This book rewards the reader by identifying what contact, communication and learning can mean for a deafblind child. At the same time it sets out detailed guidance on practice. Throughout, information is given with a rare insight and compassion for children with these very special needs.
