Understanding sensory needs is fundamental for good social work and care management practice and is an important aspect of anti-oppressive practice. This book outlines different sensory needs, including Deafness/deafness, hearing impairment, Deafblindness and visual impairment, and enables students and practitioners to develop the knowledge, skills and values for best practice. There are chapters on communication skills, technological adaptations to increase and maintain independence and sensory awareness issues with different service users groups, including children and families, adults and those with mental health issues. This book is designed to encourage the student to make useful applications of theory to practice and promote anti-discriminatory conduct with regard to sensory issues. Social Policyas well as current government legislation, is addressed and explored and applied to real practice issues.

Product Description:

Rare Book

Review:

It is incredibly refreshing that Learning Matters have included a book on Sensory Loss in their social work series, as this is a very neglected area within the profession. This book covers key areas, and definitions around the distinction between 'big D' Deaf and 'small d' deaf are a positive inclusion. The case studies reflect realistic case scenarios and including issues around deafblindness is also positive. --Lecturer, Staffordshire University

I like the topic - the focus on sensory awareness and need is one that has not been as fully addressed in the past as it needs to be. This is a very welcome addition to the social work student's library. --Lecturer, University of York

It is hugely important for students to learn about clients with sensory impairments. This book is an invaluable resource for information and guidance on supporting clients and service users in this category. --Lecturer, Peterborough Regional College
