Bua-mi: Learning through Meaningful Outdoor Activities
Keywords:Language development, tactile language, outdoor activities, friluftsliv, deafblind, communication
This paper reflects on a long term and on-going project that used the Scandinavian “friluftsliv” (nature living) concept and meaningful work in the outdoors as a medium for language development with young adults who are congenitally deafblind. The physical nature of the project was key to both participants developing their tactile language.
