Vision and Multi-sensory Impairment Service (SenCom)

How does the Vision Impairment Service (SenCom) Help?
The Vision Impairment Service (VIS) aims to support the successful inclusion of children and young people with vision impairment (VI), multiple disabilities and vision impairment (MDVI) and those with multi-sensory impairment (MSI) in Trinity Fields School and their home environment. VIS works closely in partnership with children and young people with VI/MSI, parents, school staff and other professionals at Trinity Fields School to meet their individual VI and MSI requirements and needs.

Vision Impairment
Following a referral and assessment the VI service can provide a range of services including direct support strategies and recommendations to ensure that the child is given the opportunity to develop their vision and use it as its optimum in a vision friendly environment.

The Habilitation Specialist provides training, direct support, intervention and advice in mobility, orientation and independent living skills for children and young people with VI/MSI to enable the children to become as independent as possible.

Multi-sensory Impairment
Children and young people with multi-sensory impairment (MSI) have a combination of hearing and vision loss.  Advice and guidance is made available to parents and school regarding beneficial strategies, establishing appropriate programmes and monitoring the development of communication and their senses.

Training is available to school and parents in the following areas:

The Vision Impairment Service welcomes enquiries and referrals from anyone with concerns or questions regarding vision or multi-sensory impairment and associated equipment.

Referral forms can be obtained by contacting the service on 01633 648888 or emailing or by contacting Katie Salter (QTVI) or Andrew Jones (QTVI/MSI) directly.
