A strategic framework for meeting the needs of people with a sensory impairment in Scotland
2. What will this Strategy Achieve?
2.1. The seamless provision of assessment, care and support to children and adults with a sensory impairment.
2.2. Children and adults with a sensory impairment should expect the same access to education, employment, healthcare, social care and leisure as everyone else.
2.3. People who have or develop a sensory loss understand what this loss will mean for them.
2.4. People who have or develop a sensory loss are able to access information and be supported to take the maximum possible control over living as independently as possible, while also getting direct assistance when needed: appropriate communication is critical to this.
2.5. Children and young people with a sensory impairment should expect appropriate and timely intervention in the early years and for as long as is required.
