What should I do to help the child understand what textured symbol or object cue means?

The key to helping a child understand the meaning of any communication cue or symbol is to link it closely to its referent (mutual tactile attention within conversations will support this) and to use it consistently within meaningful activities in a variety of settings. The child needs to learn that a particular textured card or object stands for a particular activity or object. When the child touches the textured card or object, he or she must receive or experience the referent immediately.
