Deafblind assessments

All Councils in England and Wales have to follow certain guidelines to support people who are deafblind. This includes providing a specialist deafblind assessment to people who require or request one.

This should assess the need for communication support, one-to one human contact, social interaction and emotional wellbeing, support with mobility assistive technology and habilitation/rehabilitation.

Our fully qualified team can work with you to carry out deafblind assessments, in line with the Deafblind Guidance in The Care Act (2014). We will then complete a comprehensive written report which details the needs for:

  • Social interaction
  • Communication
  • Movement,
  • Orientation and mobility
  • Emotional wellbeing
  • Human contact
  • Assistive technology
  • Rehabilitation
