I don't know anyone personally but I did see one of those shows where they fix houses for families and the family had 2 deaf parents, a blind kid and a kid with both working and they spoke in a tactile asl.
This was a while ago though so I can't remember the show or episode much.

Sorry I'm not much help.

Never learned how to use tactile signing. But have seen it and I admire people who uses it.

Good luck with that.

Vorsia, I don't know anything about tactile signing -- sorry.

I was wondering if you are on any MVG forums? Perhaps there is something else you can do to lessen the symptoms?

Used to have a lot of attacks of Vertigo...could not see or hear anything. So I laid down for an hour or so. As for tactile signing, I'm no help here.....

Here's hoping some other members will have some good suggestions for you...it must be hard dealing with ur small children.

I know they do eyepatches and also lenses with prisms for the vision problems in myasthenia gravis.

Maybe that correction will be more practical than tactile sign.
