- Other notes
When we talk about deafblind children we mean those who have difficulties with sight and hearing, and sometimes learning or additional disabilities. We also mean children who have medical conditions that are likely to cause problems with sight and hearing as they grow older e.g. Usher Syndrome. In addition Sense can offer advice and support to families of children with a hearing or vision impairment combined with additional needs.
