Dual sensory loss


Dual-sensory impairment or multi-sensory impairment are other terms that may be used if you have both sight and hearing impairments. Many people take these terms to mean the same as 'deafblindness'. However, some people only use the term ‘deafblindness’ to refer to more severe impairments, whilst others prefer the term dual-sensory since it conveys more effectively the impact of being deafblind. (Source: SENSE).


So we can provide you with the most appropriate support please complete and submit both the sight and hearing referral forms in full.
