Session Detail

TSBVI Coffee Hour: Interactions with Children who are Deafblind: a Conversation and Website Introduction
Hosted via Zoom on September 27, 2021

How do we join the person who is deafblind in sharing their world, a world experienced through touch? How do we arouse curiosity? What is the path to bonding? Why must we recognize and affirm their communication before a formal language can be co-created? Have you ever considered how a person who is deafblind learns the concepts that people with vision and hearing learn incidentally…. from observation?

Join Chris Montgomery, deafblind education consultant with the TX Deafblind Project for a tour of the recently created website, “Interactions with Children who are Deafblind”. During our Coffee Hour session, we will explore experiencing the world through the sense of touch. We will investigate how to initiate interaction, share meaningful experiences, and co-create formal language with the deafblind learner. The hope of this session is to provide the audience with questions that will provoke thought, reflection, and further inquiry into interactions with individuals who are deafblind. The session is not intended as a “how-to” guide for instruction.

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.
