Tactile Reciprocal Interactions & BETs

Tactile Reciprocal Interactions & BETs

An interview with Bernadette Van Den Tillaart and Gunnar Vege, who both work with children with congenital deafblindness. Their experiences and research have led them to emphasis the need for educators to enter into the tactile world of the child with deafblindness, to mirror and affirm a child's experiences and emotions, from which a child becomes increasingly self-aware and better able to communicate and interact with the environment.
