Understanding Working Memory in the Bodily-Tactile Modality
Working memory, or the ability to keep something in mind for a limited amount of time, is a central function in cognition. For persons with congenital deafblindness we need a bodily-tactile perspective on working memory. In this presentation, Dr. Nicholas will discuss the Tactile Working Memory Scale and discuss the importance of tactile memory in learning for people who are congenitally deafblind. Participants will learn about the Tactile Working Memory Scale developed in 2019 by the Nordic Welfare Center, and written by Jude T. Nicholas, Annika M. Johannessen, and Trees van Nunen. This manual is meant to “give an overview of the theoretical foundations of working memory and link it to the assessment and intervention of tactile working memory.”

Panel discussion with Dr. Nicholas
Panel discussion with Dr. Nicholas facilitated by Adam Graves, Chris Montgomery, and David Wiley.
