Reviews for Handson
If a person cannot hear or see they must learn by 'hands-on'. I watched as Gay Bellamy patiently helped a deaf-blind individual feel the shape of a comb, then spell the word usng ASL in the persons hand, then feel the comb go through her hair. Repeating this again and again until the person could begin to associate the shape, the feel and the name of the object. That whole process has to be repeated many, many times for each word the person learns. HandsOn provides training, enrichment and a home for persons who are deaf, blind and have additional physical and mental disabilities. I cant think of a more challanging task or a more critical need. God Bless HandsOn!
