My dog Daphne is blind so I'm interested in connecting with other people whose learner has special needs. Perhaps we could learn from each other how to accommodate for them and help them succeed with their words.
Hi there! I’m primarily participating in research with my dog, but also training my blind cat to use the buttons. Tonight she pressed ‘hungry’ for the first time instead of knocking things off the countertop! She has just two buttons so far: ‘pets’ and ‘hungry’. Her ‘pets’ button has the soft side of Velcro stuck to it to help her differentiate by feel and it seems to be working well so far!
