Abstract
The study carried out by a married couple, specialists in the sphere of deafblindness (one of whom has got an Usher syndrome), is devoted to the development of means of non-verbal communication and music perception for people with double sensory defect — deafblindness. Russ Palmer is a professional musician who had lost his hearing capacity under the influence of Usher syndrome. At present together with his wife he is inventing new ways of widening the contacts with the external world for people who found themselves in the same difficult situation. The authors of the book prove that any welfare item like a pillow or a toy balloon can sometimes dramatically change the situation for better.

Keywords: deafblindness; Usher syndrome; music perception; tactile perception; non-verbal communication
