Welcome to our website
This website is for people who are interested in finding out more about Deafblind Studies, about Programme developments or for those wishing to submit an application for the course.
Deafblind Studies is a ‘not for profit’ venture developed by a consortium of charities: Deafblind Scotland, Sense and Sense Scotland (visit the home pages of each by clicking on the organisation’s logo at the top of this page). The course is the outcome of almost twenty years of partnership working, with the most experienced practitioners in the field of deafblindness pooling knowledge and resources to produce the best materials and teaching the field can offer. This unique programme of study is aimed at professionals involved in designing and / or delivering services to deafblind people living in the community or in residential care. The curriculum explores congenital and acquired deafblindness in detail, is thoroughly grounded in practice and is subject to continuous improvement and refinement. The outcome: workers at the forefront of practice, equipped to meet statutory requirements and duties in relation to deafblindness.
With face-to-face and online versions of the programme, the consortium offers a wider range of learning opportunities to the broad group of professionals who support deafblind people to lead the lives they would wish to lead.
For more about what we do select the ‘Programme Information‘ tab. To submit an application visit the ‘Advanced Applications‘ tab (currently suspended whilst we get our latest cohort up and running, this page will be back on line late October / early November).
