Deafblindness is a combination of sight and hearing loss that affects a person's ability to communicate, access all kinds of information, and get around.
If your child has been diagnosed with deafblindness, or a condition causing deafblindness, they can be referred to the Deafblindness team.
Deafblindness, sometimes known as dual or multi sensory impairment, is not just a deaf person who can't see, or a blind person who can't hear. The two impairments together increase the effects of each.
