  Abstract:  Deafblindness is a combination of visual and hearing loss that comes into various degrees, determining a unique profile of development, communication skills and learning difficulties. Deafblind individuals can make use of many systems of communication according to their level of development, residual sight and/ or hearing and prior experiences. Some of the systems are adapted or augmentative so that the deafblind person can build up interactions, relate to the environment and have access to information, avoid isolation and make progress in different areas of development. One of the frequently used system in order to develop communication skills consists in the use of objects of reference, especially for pre-verbal individuals.
