What is multisensory impairment/deafblindness?

Multisensory Impairment (MSI) is a term used to describe somebody who has both sight and hearing loss and in some instances this may be combined with additional health, learning and physical needs.

This combination of difficulties creates a unique pattern of learning which impacts upon:

  • the development of communication
  • access to the environment
  • the ability to move safely and independently
If most everything we learn about our world comes through our vision and hearing it is easy to understand that without appropriate intervention and support a deafblind person might be deprived of opportunities to achieve their full potential and live a fulfilling life.

Our mission is to remove barriers for children and young people with sensory impairments through raising awareness, assessment of need, bespoke training, specialist advice and qualified support and intervention
