Sense is a national charity that supports and campaigns for children and adults who are deafblind / multi-sensory impaired. It provides advice and information, tailored support and specialist services to all deafblind people, their families, carers and the professionals who work with them. In addition, they support people who have single sensory impairment with additional needs.
Sense Children’s Specialist Services team focuses on what your child can do and what they need to help them develop further. This can include:
- Help when your child is first diagnosed – including giving you practical ideas about how to develop your child’s skills, and advise on suitable play activities.
- Assessments that look at your child as a whole, focusing on what your child can do.
- Extra support at times of crisis – such as when a family is under considerable stain.
- Support with significant periods of change for your child (transitions) such as starting school and moving into adulthood
