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
