Training a Blind Autistic Child to Communicate through Signs.
Konstantareas, M. Mary; And Others
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v12 n1 p1-11 Mar 1982
Signs were used successfully with a blind 10-year-old autistic girl. After eight months of training, she was able to acquire a functional sign vocabulary relying primarily on the tactile-kinesthetic and the auditory modalities. This newly acquired skill had a beneficial impact on the child's general functioning. (Author)
