    тактильное

    I couldn't find the meaning of this word? I found it in the following sentence. Is there such a word in Russian or is it a typo?

    - Здравый смысл доказывает, что общение ребенка с матерью, и особенно, тактильное общение, очень важно для его умственного развития.

    Doesn't it simply mean 'tactile'?

    tac·tile ( P ) Pronunciation Key (tktl, -tl)
    adj.

    Perceptible to the sense of touch; tangible.
    Characterized by or conveying an illusion of tangibility: “Heaney must thus continue to be a poet rich in tactile language” (Helen Vendler).
    Used for feeling: a tactile organ.
    Of, relating to, or proceeding from the sense of touch; tactual: a tactile reflex.


    "Common sense suggests that dialogue between the child and mother, most especially tactile dialogue, is very important for its intellectual development."

    Seems to make sense in context.

    I think you are right that тактильный means tactile. Another word I can think of at the moment is haptic. To be honest, I have never heard the word тактильный before. At least, I had no idea what it means before seeing it in this post.
