Post #2 Tadoma
Before this class and this book, I have heard of Helen Keller and her amazing accomplishments even though she is both deaf and blind. The fact that she is able to communicate effectively even though she was born with out both senses is truly mind blowing! I have always wondered how she was able to communicate and never truly understood until I read chapter 7 where the author introduces us to Tadoma, which is a method of lip reading by touch. Truly incredible how she has been able to learn and utilize Tadoma in order to communicate with others. This video shows how Helen's heightened sense of touch allows her to feel the vibrations of words of someone who is speaking to her through Tadoma.
