Description of Assessing Tactile Skills and Planning Interventions

A comprehensive assessment of how a child with multiple disabilities receives information is needed to guide planning for appropriate interventions to support his or her communication. Such assessment is based on interviews with family members, observation of the child's use of touch, and analysis of key activities. Assessment also needs to consider the prompts that are required to support a child's participation in activities or tasks.
