In 2007, the Network on Cognition in Relation to Deafblindness was established.
Our purpose is – as the name of the group indicates – to develop assessment of cognition in relation to deafblindness.
The Guidelines in this publication are structured in three parts.
Part I gives an introduction to the theoretical foundation of the work of the network and of the guidelines in the present booklet.
Part II is an analysis of textbooks and introductions to assessment in general, that aim at teasing out general guidelines that need specific CDB focus. This part ends up in a set of recommendations for assessment of cognition in relation to CDB.
Part III is a series of examples from our own work that present different attempts at applying the presented guidelines and theoretical foundation, in combination with more specific assessment targets and procedures.

If you can see it, you can support it – A book on tactile language

When we add a linguistic value to bodily tactile expressions and recognise tactile languages as natural languages, we are able to communicate linguistically with people with congenital deafblindness.



From the motto if you can see it, you can support it this book gives an idea of how communication partners can spot and read utterances in the bodily tactile modality as language. It shows how the partner can respond to the tactile speech and support the langauage development by using different cognitive strategies in the conversations to activate both the tactile work memory and the tactile autobiographical memory. The book presents a circle model that can be used as a basis for discussion and analysis in relation to language that grows from a bodily tactile modality. The Nordic network on tactile language has published this book about tactile language to benefit persons with deafblindness, their families and professionals.

Revealing hidden potentials

Revealing hidden potentials - Assessing cognition in individuals with congenital deafblindness

People with congenital deafblindness often have hidden cognitive potential that those around them fail to detect. This can lead to missing out on communication, or not even having the opportunity to develop a tactile language. A professional assessment of the cognition may reveal latent abilities and with suitable strategies the person with congenital deafblindness can develop their full potential. This book presents a range of theories and tools for professionals who are involved in making examinations and assessments of cognition in cases of congenital deafblindness in both children and adults.

Tactile Working Memory Scale

Tactile Working Memory Scale – A Professional Manual
Authors: Jude T. Nicholas, Annika M. Johannessen, Trees van Nunen


Working memory, or the ability to keep something in mind for a limited amount of time is a central function in cognition. For persons with congenital deafblindness we need a bodily-tactile perspective on working memory. This manual gives a theoretical overview and presents a scale that can be used by professionals to identify and assess tactile working memory in persons with deafblindness, and design tools and strategies to ensure that these persons can develop and make use of all their potentials, both cognitively and linguistically.
