This manual gives professionals tools to identify and assess tactile working memory in persons with deafblindness.
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.
When we add a linguistic value to bodily tactile expressions and recognise tactile languages as natural languages, we are able to communicate liguistically with people with congenital deafblindness.
