Sensory and Physical

Sensory and/or Physical needs

Children with sensory or physical needs may have a disability, such as;

  • physical disability
  • vision impairment
  • hearing impairment
  • multi-sensory impairment (both hearing and vision difficulties)
  • dyspraxia

They may need specialist equipment to access learning and other opportunities available to their peers.

They may also need support to help with daily tasks such as eating or travelling. This is sometimes referred to as habilitation support.
