June 18, 2020 2:30-4:00 PM EST Title: Availability for Learning in Children with multi-sensory Impairments with David Brown. The majority of children with deaf-blindness today have significant disabilities with most or all of the sensory systems impaired including perception of pain, smell, taste, touch, balance as well as vision and hearing. Two of these senses – the proprioceptive sense and the vestibular sense are particularly important yet often ignored. These two senses play a key role in helping the brain attend to the external environment.
