Vision Impairment and Deafness

Support for children and young people who are deaf/hard of hearing, have a vision impairment, or who have a multi-sensory impairment.  

The Sensory Service provides support to children and young people at home or in a preschool setting during the preschool years and within an educational setting during school aged years.  Some children and young people with sensory impairments will require specialist support for them to access learning and information. For others, their needs can be met through appropriate strategies and reasonable adjustments at home and in the classroom.

Information, advice, training and guidance can be provided to families, carers and educational setting staff.
