Deaf-Blind and Mute Children: How Taught? How Much Communication? Life From Their Eyes?
February 26, 2004 7:38 AM Subscribe
Deaf-blind question. I ask only out of curiosity, but google turns up academic stuff that's above my head. How are deaf-blind children taught? What level of communication can they attain? Does being mute make a difference? Do we know what life is like inside a mind that has only touch/taste/smell senses of the world?
I'm thinking mainly of those who are born deaf and blind.
