Tadoma is a method of lip reading that requires touching a peron's articulators to percieve speech. The individual is usually deaf and blind when using tadoma. They place their thumb on the speaker's lips and spread their other fingers along the face and neck. The vibrations and motions allow the individual to pick up what they are saying. This takes a lot of time to learn, however, I feel it is very inspiring. The loss of vision and hearing is a hard thing to experience as it is hard to do almost anything without the two. Tadoma brings them hope and allows them to communicate despite their loss. In the book, we see another example of using vibrations to know when someone is there. These vibrations, both through the face and felt from the floor, allow people to be aware of what is going on. It is amazing what these people teach themselves, in order to compromise for their losses. It was definitely inspiring to read.
The psychology of Perception involves the interaction of our senses and our conscious mind. Perception is involved in every aspect of our lives as we make decisions and judgments based on what we experience. If you study diligently you will leave this course with a broad understanding of sensation and perception. From this general understanding you will be able to further investigate areas of interest by means of literature review and research on specific topics.
