Sense campaign – Take action for children with multi-sensory impairment

Posted in News

Sense is seeking your support

“Every child has the right to an education. But many children with multi-sensory impairment (MSI) in England are missing out on an education because of the shortage of specialist teachers in schools. New research from Sense reveals that 52% of local authorities don’t employ any MSI teachers and families are struggling to access MSI teachers in their local area.

Sense is calling on government to create a new MSI education fund to train, retain and employ MSI teachers.

In March the government will announce their new spending plans. Email your MP before then and ask them to make sure all disabled children are supported at school – www.sense.org.uk/msi-action
