Sensory impairment is when one of the senses; sight, hearing, smell, touch, taste and spatial awareness, is no longer normal. If one wears glasses, they have a sight impairment, and if one finds it hard to hear or have a hearing aid, then they have a hearing impairment.

A person does not have to have a full loss of a sense to be sensory impaired. However, these impairments may affect many aspects of their lives. Our multi-sensory impairment training courses were designed to give learners a broader awareness of these problems so that they are better able to support them.

What is sensory impairment?

Sensory impairment is when one of your senses, e.g., sight, hearing, smell, touch, taste and spatial awareness, is no longer normal. For example, if you wear glasses, then you have a sight impairment, or if you find it hard to hear or have a hearing aid, then you have a hearing impairment.

Multi-sensory impairment in children

Children who have a multi-sensory impairment (MSI) have both a vision and hearing loss. Their sensory loss may be present at birth or acquired later.

Some of these children also have medical, physical and cognitive disabilities. Multi-sensory impairment impacts on all areas of learning and children may need additional support to learn to communicate and develop socially.

Through working closely with the child or young person and family, the service can provide families and schools with information and strategies for development for example on functional use of vision and or hearing, development of communication, mobility, physical skills and environmental adaptations.

What is a sensory disability?

A sensory disability refers to an impairment of the senses (e.g. sight, hearing).

As 95% of the information about the world around us comes from our sight and hearing, a sensory disability can affect how a person gathers information from the world around them. 

What is vision impairment

Vision impairment (also referred to as visual impairment) is any diagnosed condition of the eye or optical system that cannot be corrected to within normal limits.

Why is sensory impairment training essential?

Sensory impairment is when one of the senses; sight, hearing, smell, touch, taste and spatial awareness, is no longer normal. If one wears glasses, they have a sight impairment, and if one finds it hard to hear or have a hearing aid, then they have a hearing impairment.

A person does not have to have a full loss of a sense to be sensory impaired. However, these impairments may affect many aspects of their lives. Our multi-sensory impairment training courses were designed to give learners a broader awareness of these problems so that they are better able to support them.
