Sensory impairment

There is an increased prevalence of Sensory Impairments within the learning disabilities population.

It has been demonstrated that visual and hearing impairments are frequently unrecognised and under reported.

People with limited verbal communication skills may have difficulty in conveying deterioration in hearing or vision and be unable to know of any benefit from improvement.

It is good practice therefore to assess vision and hearing in persons with a learning disability.
