Sensory Impairment Service 0 – 25 years
This is a centrally held education service for any child with a diagnosed hearing or visual disability within the borough of Knowsley available from birth.
The team supports children and young people with a sensory loss, their families, educational settings, colleges and work with other professionals and agencies to assess and meet the needs related to that sensory loss.
We have two services that we provide our help through: The Service for the Sensory Impaired (Visually impaired) and The Service for the Sensory Impaired (Hearing Impairment Service)
