Quite a few years ago when I was working as a special education teacher I taught Tadoma, a form of tactile speech reading. The system is largely neglected today but I have always felt that somewhere along the line I should share my experiences, particularly considering there are now so few people around the world with expert knowledge in this area. In this paper I provide a description of Tadoma: what it is, who developed it, and when, where, and why it was taught. I go on to provide details regarding how I taught it, its strengths and weaknesses, and conclude with a discussion regarding whether there might be a place for Tadoma in 2014.
