Should blind and deaf children be able to learn at school?

Cambridgeshire County Council has proposed a drastic reorganisation of the County Sensory Service. For children with sight and hearing loss, these plans are likely to result in a disastrous loss of essential specialist support and expertise.

We call on Cambridgeshire County Council to:

- Keep the Sensory Service county-wide, so that specialist support for blind and partially sighted children, and hearing impaired and deaf children, can be retained and targeted;

- give families proper time to read and understand these worrying proposals before closing the consultation.

- properly resource the Sensory Service, so that Braille users are given the support recommended by the National Quality Standards, andthe IT contract includes the provision of follow up support.
