Deafblindness is diverse; this means that each deafblind person has a unique experience of hearing and sight loss. The key learning outcomes that are explored during awareness sessions are:
Definition of deafblindness
The four groups of deafblind people
Sight/hearing loss causes and effects
Communication, access to information and mobility
Identity and culture
In order to meet your specific training needs we can create and deliver a bespoke training package. The training and content can be tailored to enhance existing skills and knowledge and incorporate standard awareness topics as well as additional subject areas. For example: Focusing on the needs of a particular service user, focusing on the needs of a specific service user group, focusing on the needs of a particular staff group and understanding Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) and Equality Act.
