Unit 393: Understand Sensory Loss Sensory loss is an impairment of any of the senses. Without probably realising we use these senses to carry out everyday life. Sensory loss can lead to isolation and frustration for individuals who suffer with these losses. Factors may be simple things we take for granted, for example people who have difficulty hearing and seeing may not be able to enjoy watching TV, a telephone conversation, or be able to distinguish between people’s faces and so on. People’s attitudes and beliefs towards people with sensory difficulties may impact negatively on individuals as they may assume that they lack understanding; quite often it may be those who are making assumptions who are acting incorrectly in accordance with the impairment; for example, people may use a raised voice when speaking to someone with a visual impairment.
The negative side of sensory loss is that they may find it hard to feed themselves, dressing themselves and that their mobility may deteariate. Also, hobbies and interests can have a negative impact on their lives. Some people may also feel alone and scared due to sensory loss. There is support for the deaf and blind to give them a better outlook on life. 1.4 Steps that can be taken to overcome the negative factors could be that you make sure all areas are clear of obstacles so therefore an individual with eye sight impairment might fall over or fall into.
1, 2, Societal attitudes and beliefs can impact individuals with sensory loss in quite a negative way because people in society can be very judgmental towards people with disabilities, and put them in a group of people with below average intelligence and assume they can’t do or think the same way as other people without disabilities can. People in society can also be very prejudice and ignorant and think they are better than people with sensory loss, also thinking it gives them the right to make fun at them and making life difficult in the process. Although not all people think the same way there are many other people in society that are very open towards individuals with disabilities and sensory loss and can be very helpful and kind, this can have a positive impact on people’s lives. 1, 3, There are a range of factors that societal attitudes and beliefs impact on service provisions, discrimination is one of the biggest problem in today’s society , people with sensory loss are treated differently, and there a lot of barriers that need to be overcome, service provision is a term used to describe a wide range of activities, including the provision of assistive devices, rehabilitation services, occupational therapy and health services. Although there are a lot of places like this there is still the need to raise awareness so
Unit 393 - Understand Sensory Loss 1.1; Sensory losses can have a very negative impact on individuals that suffer from them, it can lead to loneliness and possibly isolation. As we use our senses to understand the world around us through body language, collecting information and communicating, when someone’s senses is impaired it can affect the way they perceive situations. If a person has hearing loss then something as simple as hearing the doorbell can be difficult, this can lead to not being able to socialise and communicate effectively and could develop into isolation is extreme circumstances.

Unit 12 2.1explain how individuals experience discrimination due to misinformation The attitudes people have towards those of us with mental health problems mean it is harder for them to work, make friends and in short, live a normal life. -People become isolated -They are excluded from everyday activities -It is harder to get or keep a job -People can be reluctant to seek help, which makes recovery slower and more difficult -Their physical health is affected.
