Question and answer
Explain the methods of communication used by individuals with: - Sight loss - Hearing loss - Deaf blindness
Deafblind people communicate in many different ways determined by the nature of their condition, the age of onset, and what resources are available to them. [ For example, someone who grew up deaf and experienced vision loss later in life is likely to use a sign language (in a visually modified or tactual form). Others who grew up blind and later became deaf are more likely to use a tactile mode
of their spoken/written language. Methods of communication include: * Use of residual hearing (speaking clearly, hearing aids) or sight (signing within a restricted visual field, writing with large print). * Tactile signing, sign language, or a manual alphabet such as the American Manual Alphabet or Deafblind Alphabet (also known as "two-hand manual") with tactile or visual modifications. * Interpreting services (such as sign language interpreters or communication aides). * Communication devices such as Tellatouch or its computerized versions known as the TeleBraille and Screen Braille Communicator. Multisensory methods have been used to help deafblind people enhance their communication skills. These can be taught to very young children with developmental delays (to help with pre-intentional communication), young people with learning difficulties, or older people, including those with dementia. One such process is Tacpac. Amateur radio deafblind operators generally communicate on 2-way radios using Morse code. ]
