"Exploring Protactile Language in Early Childhood" delves into the fascinating world of language acquisition among DeafBlind children. Protactile language, a touch-based communication system, has emerged as a groundbreaking linguistic innovation within the DeafBlind community. While it has traditionally been used by adults, our research seeks to understand how this language can be introduced to children at an early age. Early language acquisition is a critical component of child development, and protactile language offers a fully accessible means of communication for DeafBlind children. By studying the ways in which young learners interact with and acquire protactile language, we hope to contribute to the growth of this unique linguistic system and promote inclusive communication for DeafBlind individuals from the earliest stages of life.
