Our training courses seem to be plugging a large gap in awareness of deafblindness in older people, “I didn’t realise there were so many tools I could use”. Participants are finding the mix of theory and practical makes the learning highly accessible “Extremely informative, full of useful scenarios”.
The confidence gained in our training is showing through feedback from participants: “I have learnt a lot and I will go out and show as many as I can what I have learnt”‘ “I feel that if a deafblind visitor came into our centre I would be more confident in approaching them for the first time than I have been because of practising the block alphabet”.
Hearing Impairment and Visual Impairment Support UK (Hi-VisUK) is a UK registered Charitable Incorporated Organisation – a charity – raising awareness, offering training, providing qualifications, and opportunities to support older people with age acquired dual sensory loss.
