About the Scottish Sensory Centre

For everyone who is involved in the education of deaf children, deafblind children and visually impaired children and young people, the young people themselves and their families.

The Scottish Sensory Centre promotes and supports new developments and effective practices in the education of children and young people with sensory impairments, that is; visual impairment, deaf and deafblind. It achieves this by means of CPD short courses, conferences, research and providing a postal resource library; and by dissemination of reports, research, course materials and new developments via this website, publications and presentations.

The SSC collaborates with: education authorities; schools and groups of teachers; voluntary organisations; parents groups; young people themselves.

The information contained in this website is freely available to anyone on the internet. The Centre staff regret that they cannot deal with individual enquiries except from people in Scotland regarding VI, Deafblind and Deaf young people in the 0-19 age group.
