Learning disabilities and sight impairments
Services for people with a learning disability
KAB rehab workers are experienced in providing rehab services to people with learning disabilities. We’ll work to ensure that people with a learning disability and sight impairment can achieve their maximum level of independence and we'll give their families and carers help and advice so they are also able to support them; this can be on an individual basis or via one of our training courses. Regular eye health checks are important for everyone, and especially for people with learning disabilities as they are more likely to find it difficult to see properly. Opticians have special picture tests for people who find it difficult to speak or read and KAB's rehab workers can also give you advice on how to make eye tests more accessible.
KAB's Intervenor Service
This service provides one-to-one person-centred support, and is designed for adults who are congenitally deafblind, and who have a learning disability or additional physical disabilities, resulting in complex needs.
Occasionally the service may also benefit a person with a single sensory impairment who also has significant additional disabilities, resulting in complex needs.
