Untouchable, new outside world

Riitta Lahtinen, PhD and Russ Palmer, Music Therapist, Vibro Acoustic Therapy practioner

We explore how social isolation affects family life. Our main communication methods are speech using CIs, finger spelling and social-haptic communication. Haptices (touch messages), fingerspelling and haptic exploration are used in close contact. We have been teaching last 30 years how to approach deafblind person and touch, now we need to teach people to keep their distance.

Many deafblind people are accustomed to having a lot of human contact; outside greeting others and explore objects through touch. Now by the time you get out you have to worry that people are not keeping the necessary social distance. We share some tips and solutions on how to communicate and take care of things during the corona time. For deafblind people, the importance of contact to be guided is very important. So what happens when touch is forbidden? We will introduce some solutions when going out; keep your distance clothes, Nordic cane walking with using haptic guiding belt, “bridles” behind, hospital bag including haptices information sheets, deafblind-wrist band and how to teach the consept of keeping two metres apart from each others.
