The MSi provision team focus on the education of children with Multi-Sensory Impairment (deafblindness) at Fairfield School.
The legal definition for deafblindness in Britain is:
‘A person is regarded as deafblind if their combined sight and hearing impairment cause difficulties with communication, access to information and mobility. This includes people with a progressive sight and hearing loss.’ (DoH, 2014)
In addition to the dual sensory impairments the MSi pupils at Fairfield have, the majority also have multiple and complex disabilities.
