Description

What is Social-Haptic Communication?

Social haptics involves interaction between two or more people in a social context where messages are conveyed using the

sense of touch.

Touch is perhaps the earliest developing and longest lasting of our all our senses and can be applied across the spectrum of

language users, from those with highly complex signed or spoken language, to those just beginning their journey into

language and communication.

If you have any role in the development of communicating for an individual with a sensory impairment, attending this

workshop is a must. This full day program will cover:

* Individuals with deafblindness
* People with hearing/vision impairment
* Families/carers
* Support workers
* Sign language interpreters
* Education staff
* Health professionals providing services for the deafblind community
