To inspire families and professionals communicating with deafblind children and adults. The cultural languages that exist world-wide are either perceived by vision or hearing. People with acquired deafblindness have developed tactile forms for perceiving sign language and speech, but this happens after language acquisition.
For people with congenital deafblindness, who experience the world and the culture/language mainly using the bodily senses, it is therefore a big challenge to be part of linguistic activities and constructs of the culture.
