Visual impairment, hearing impairment and multi-sensory impairment support
Some children and young people require special educational provision because they have a disability which prevents or hinders them from making use of the educational facilities generally provided. These difficulties can be age-related and may fluctuate over time.
Many children with a sensory impairment will require specialist teaching support and/or equipment to access their learning. This is provided by either a Teacher of the Deaf, Advisory Teacher for Visual Impairment or a Qualified Teacher of Multi-Sensory Impairment.
