Sensory and Physical Teaching Service (SaPTS)

Description

The Sensory and Physical Teaching Service supports children from 0-25 with a vision or hearing impairment. We also support children with a physical difficulty in an education setting. We work in homes, nurseries, schools and colleges to ensure pupils can access the curriculum, develop independence and prepare for adulthood. We also provide equipment for pupils with a hearing or vision impairment that supports and enhances their learning experience.
