People with a Sensory Impairment

What is sensory impairment?

Sensory impairment is when one of your senses; sight, hearing, smell, touch, taste and spatial awareness, is no longer normal.

Examples - If you wear glasses you have a sight impairment, if you find it hard to hear or have a hearing aid then you have a hearing impairment.

A person does not have to have full loss of a sense to be sensory impaired.
People with a sensory impairment will have experienced life with their individual impairment in a completely different way to others who may be classed as belonging to the same group – no two people will be exactly the same and services should not be delivered as if they were.
