Touch Me (Tools) for Communication

Practical knowledge of psychiatric wards and working with children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) has allowed me to develop an understanding of learning disabilities, developmental disorders and psychiatric conditions, where the fundamental components of social communication are underdeveloped or lost through human misinterpretation.

The aim of this project is to understand the role of simple forms of communication using movement and non-verbal language as a platform for the design and choreography of communication (Tools).
