Dual Sensory Loss Project
Imagine what it would be like not to be able to see OR hear properly. This is dual sensory loss – a disability which impacts on every single area of daily life.
Sight loss affects how people cope with independence – getting around safely, reading, cooking, etc. Hearing loss affects communication with others, listening to information on the radio or TV, using the telephone, etc. The impact of a combined sight AND hearing loss is difficult to imagine.
