Peterborough Sensory Support Service provides specialist educational support for children and young people with sight loss – from pre-school through to further education. They aim to enable pupils to have equal access to all curriculum experiences and opportunities. We provide help with:

  • Ongoing assessment of visual skills and implications for class teachers and classroom assistants
  • Specialist skills teaching such as braille, Moon, touch typing, independence skills (including mobility)
  • Counselling and Emotional support
  • Access to learning materials in large print, braille, Moon and tape
  • Assessment of and access to specialist equipment needs
  • Transition arrangements between educational placements
  • Optimal lighting, seating position and classroom organisation
  • Learning braille
  • Educational support
  • Learning Moon

Most children who need specialist support are referred by medical personnel. However, anyone who is closely involved with children and concerned about their vision can make a referral by phone or in writing.
