Scottish Sensory Centre

For everyone who is involved in the education of deaf children, deafblind children and visually impaired children and young people, the young people themselves and their families.

We are funded by the Scottish Government to provide Career-Long Professional Learning opportunities to teachers and professionals, we engage in research into the issues that affect children with sensory impairments and the professionals who work with them. We also provide an information service comprising a postal lending library, information searches and online resources.
