Description of The Sense of Touch

When children have visual impairments and other significant disabilities, the sense of touch becomes a critical means of obtaining information about the world around them, communicating and interacting with others, and developing concepts. This chapter discusses the differences between touch and vision that need to be considered when planning tactile strategies to use with children, as well as various types of touch. It includes simulation activities to help family members, peers, and professionals experience the child's point of view.
