People with multi-sensory impairment (MSI) have a combination of hearing and vision impairments. Most MSI people will have some useful vision and hearing; however, there are some who are completely deaf and blind.
Not all people with MSI identify as being deafblind. They may identify as deaf people who can’t see very well, physically disabled people who can’t see or hear very well, or as older people who can’t see or hear as well as they used to.
Health and Social Care Services believe that no one, no matter how complex their disabilities, should be isolated, left out, or unable to fulfil their potential.
Our experience of the world, our ‘reality’, comes through our senses. People with hearing and/or visual impairments have a different ‘reality’. They don’t experience the world in the same way as sighted hearing people; their whole knowledge and experience of the world is different. Sight and hearing are often called the distance senses because they give us information about what’s happening all around us.
With the right support, however, they can learn to make best use of their sight, hearing and other senses, and develop the confidence to be inquisitive and interested in the world around them.
