Physical & Sensory
There is a wide range of sensory and physical difficulties that affect children and young people across the ability range. Many children and young people require minor adaptations to the curriculum, their study programme or the physical environment. Many such adaptations may be required as reasonable adjustments under the Equality Act 2010.
Children and young people with a visual impairment (VI) or a hearing impairment (HI) may require specialist support and equipment to access their learning.
Children and young people with a Multi-Sensory Impairment (MSI) have a combination of visual and hearing difficulties, which makes it much more difficult for them to access the curriculum or study programme than those with a single sensory impairment.
Some children and young people with a physical disability (PD) require additional on-going support and equipment to access all the opportunities available to their peers.
Disabled children and young people
Many disabled children and young people also have a SEN. Where this is the case, access arrangements and other adjustments should be considered as part of SEN planning and review. However it may be that the steps to ensure access to mainstream education and related opportunities are sufficient to mean that special education provision does not need to be made.

Pausing Paediatric Therapy Services
Due to the national crisis with COVID-19 we are pausing the Paediatric Speech and Language Therapy Service/Paediatric Occupational Therapy Service/Paediatric Physiotherapy Service with immediate effect 26th March 2020. As a non-essential service we have been asked by NHS England to be ready to support other services in the weeks ahead and to reduce the risk to our service users, staff and the general population. We will aim to offer some advice and support over email for as long as is possible. Please see the contact us on our websites.
