Many people, who are in some form visually impaired, lose the ability of seeing facial expressions, and gestures, which are important in spoken communication. 93% of communication is through body language, gestures and expressions and the other 7% is through spoken. Many of the visually impaired find it difficult to distinguish if someone is addressing them or someone else, or if the person speaking has wandered off, which of course is a negative impact on that person. Written communication is also difficult for a person with sight loss. This can be due to too small text, colour of the text, Shiny paper, centring and underlining of text.

Unit 34 - Introductory Awareness of Sensory Loss 1-1.1 Many factors could be impacted by sensory loss. Mobility could be impared, for example, someone with sight or hearing loss (or both) may not want to walk outside, or use public trasport. A deaf or deaf blind person may find it difficult to communicate, making it hard to socialise and new relationships. They might also find it hard to get information about things, eg. trasport, appointments, benefits etc.
For example, it might say that because one of the service users is deaf in his left ear, you need to stand so that you are facing his right-hand side. Communication can be facilitated with some service users by the use of images and symbols.

Introduction The Legal Framework for the category of Auditory Impairment consists of both deaf and hard of hearing. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004 (IDEIA), defines these terms separately. Hearing impairment is defined by IDEA as, “an impairment in hearing, whether permanent or fluctuating, that adversely affects a child’s educational performance”; and deafness is defined as “a hearing impairment that is so severe that the child is impaired in processing linguistic information through hearing, with or without amplification” (NICHCY, 2013). Characteristics of auditory impairments will depend on both the hearing loss and its severity. Students with auditory impairments may have limitations of communication and language skills, academic achievement, and social and emotional functioning.
