December 7: Identifying and supporting pupils with vision and hearing problems

Vision and hearing problems are common among children and can act as a significant barrier to educational and social development. This webinar will consider the prevalence of these problems, their potential impact on children’s development, and how we can support them in school.


Taking place from 4:30pm to 5:30pm on Thursday, December 7, the webinar will see experts and practitioners discussing how vision and hearing problems often go undetected, what we can do to help identify them, and how we can subsequently support these pupils in a school environment.

This webinar will be relevant to professionals working in primary or secondary settings, including senior leadership team members, the SENDCO and wider SEND team, and inclusion and pastoral/welfare leads.


The facts


The webinar

During the one-hour discussion, our expert panel, featuring clinicians and educators, will consider:

Two of the experts on our panel – Professor David Thomson and Dr Sebastian Hendricks – have been involved with the development of Thomson Screening’s SchoolScreener, which is used by non-clinical NHS staff, and which has clocked up more than 1.2 million screenings in more than 5,000 schools. Its sister technology, SchoolScreener for Schools can be used by school support staff at key stages 2, 3 and 4. Prof Thomson and Dr Hendricks will discuss their “lessons learned” and advice for schools based on their experience in screening and supporting children’s learning and development.
