Session Detail

TSBVI Coffee Hour: Exploring the Sense of Touch
Hosted via Zoom on August 23, 2021

Have you ever wondered why your student seems tactually defensive or doesn’t want to touch objects or people, or shuts down and becomes passive when presented with tactile learning opportunities? Not all touch sensations are created equal. Neurologically, different forms of touch are connected to emotion and executive function such as problem solving. These tactile processing areas of the brain can work to suppress or support learning. In this webinar we will examine how we may need to change our approach to support and encourage our students’ abilities to access instructional materials through touch.

Captioning will be provided, if you need anything else, please email Kaycee Bennett. Some logistics will be different with our Coffee Hours, as compared to the past, but you can expect the same commitment to providing information, discussion, and collaboration on topics important to students who are blind, visually impaired, or Deafblind.
