Motor Skills in Children with Deafblindness

Children who are deafblind are often behind in their motor skill competence compared to typically developing peers. This can result in decreased levels of physical activity and overall quality of life. This presentation will review current data on motor skill competence in children who are deafblind and provide strategies practitioners can use to help increase competence. Participants will also be able to share their experiences in the motor development process.

This session was originally presented on October 19, 2020 by Melanie Perrault, Pamela Haibach-Beach, and Lauren Lieberman.
