About 1Touch™ Project
1Touch™ explores participant’s hidden assumptions regarding their own disability — their personal perception of their blindness and the otherwise unchallenged insecurities built upon that perception. Learning these techniques has proven highly effective in the development of independence, self-confidence, spatial orientation, mobility and dexterity and tactile sensitivity.
