The emergence of this new kind of biotechnology, besides the fact that, increases quite a few moral questions -- at the start, even if man made biology is intrinsically troubling in ethical phrases.

„Von allen Gebrechen, die den Menschen bedrohen erscheint mir die Taubstummblindheit als eines
der schwersten. guy stelle sich einmal einen Menschen vor, der blind, taub und stumm ist! Wie
könnte guy sich mit ihm verständigen? Er kann nicht sehen, wenn wir ihm etwas zeigen wollen,
nicht hören, wenn wir etwas zu ihm sagen und nicht sprechen, weil er stumm ist(…)“
Die Bereiche der Taubblinden- und Hörsehbehindertenpädagogik sind in der Sonderpädagogik
bisher nur wenig erforscht. Obwohl immer wieder Ansätze zur Erziehung Taubblinder und
Hörsehbehinderter entworfen wurden, gibt es bis heute jedoch keine umfangreiche Literatur,
welche diese Phänomene ausführlich und in ihrer ganzen Bandbreite beschreibt und sich mit der
Förderung dieses Personenkreises auseinandersetzt. Die in dieser Arbeit verwendeten Informationen
beruhen auf Aspekten aus einzelnen literarischen Werken und den Inhalten, welche in
Seminaren der Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, wie „AAC, taktiles Gebärden und Lormen“,
„Braille I und II“, sowie „Mehrfachbehinderte blinde und sehbehinderte Menschen“ in den
Jahren 2009 und 2010 thematisiert wurden.
Wie im Zitat von Sokoljanski bereits erwähnt, ist es für Menschen, die über Lautsprache
kommunizieren nahezu unvorstellbar, sich ohne diese ausdrücken zu können. Wenn ein Mensch
weder hören noch sehen kann oder ihm bedeutende Anteile des Seh- und Hörvermögens fehlen,
braucht er andere Möglichkeiten, um die durch diese Sinne vermittelten Informationen zu
erhalten. Diese Abhandlung beschäftigt sich mit Kommunikationssystemen für Taubblinde und
Hörsehbehinderte, denen es aus unterschiedlichsten Gründen nicht oder nur kaum möglich ist,
über Lautsprache zu kommunizieren. Zunächst wird der Begriff der Taubblindheit und Hörsehbehinderung
erläutert und auf die möglichen Ursachen dieser Beeinträchtigung eingegangen. Anschließend wird eine
Methode zur Anbahnung kommunikativer Fähigkeiten und der Spracherwerb taubblinder und hörsehbehinderter
Kinder vorgestellt. Nach der Darstellung alternativer Kommunikationsformen wird auf die
Förderung in der Schule und Rehabilitation in den verschiedenen
Lebensabschnitten eingegangen.
Abschließend werden die Bedeutung der Hände für Taubblinde und Hörsehbehinderte, die
Kommunikationssysteme im Vergleich mit Sprachsystemen, die aus der Nutzung der verschiedenen
kommunikativen Formen hervorgehende Integration in die Gesellschaft und die Voraussetzungen
für den Gebrauch der Kommunikationssysteme diskutiert.
