Difficulties with hearing or seeing are called sensory impairments. A child may need to be prescribed glasses for sight or a hearing aid to help with hearing. There does not need to be full loss of sight or hearing to have a sensory impairment.

If you notice that your child appears to have difficulty seeing or hearing, then it is important to talk to your health visitor or GP in the first instance.
