Recent advances in our understanding of the ways in which people obtain information about the world through their hand and skin sense have important practical implications for work with sensorily impaired children and adults. This volume draws together the threads of many studies, both historical and recent, to present the first systematic overview of current knowledge about tactual-haptic perception. It will be a valuable reference text for a wide variety of psychologists and other students of perception as well as for all those involved in the education of the blind and deaf. Tactual graphics, the perception of speech via the skin and the written word via Braille, the production and perception of drawings by the blind, and the social significance of touch are among the topics addressed by the chapter authors that will be of particular interest to special educators.
