Our aim is to improve inclusive practice and raise achievement.


We are a team of experts with specialist training in the management of special needs, hearing impairment, visual impairment, risk assessments, habilitation assessments and assistive technology.


How we work...

  • Schools or settings meet with parents and make a referral to our service
  • Our team visits the school or setting and makes a detailed observation
  • We meet school staff and give advice and recommendations
  • We provide a written report
  • We also receive referrals from London hospitals
  • We work very closely with the local health professionals and the Islington SEN Department


We provide advice and guidance on...

  • Best classroom practice
  • Training for teachers and teaching assistants
  • Improving the classroom acoustics and visual environment
  • Differentiation of the curriculum
  • Specialist equipment
  • Risk assessments
  • Access arrangements
  • Habilitation assessments
  • Transition
  • Assistive technology support


How schools and settings should support sensory difficulties...

  • High quality teaching should always be the starting point. A good acoustic and visual environment should be established and teachers should use strategies to support the child or young person's residual hearing and vision enabling them to access the curriculum, social information and the physical environment. Written guidance is provided to schools and settings on these.
  • For children or young people with sensory difficulties that have a minor impact on learning, language and development, teachers should follow simple guidelines to differentiate teaching or classroom approaches. Written advice is provided to schools and settings on this.
  • Sensory difficulties that have potentially significant impact on their learning, language and development, teachers should follow advice provided by their Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) and/or the Richard Cloudesley Outreach Service.
