Hearing Impairment Team
Pupils with a hearing impairment are seen on a weekly basis by Steph Wadsworth (TOD) from the Sensory Needs Team: Hearing. Steph monitors and checks hearing aids and sets up and monitors FM systems so that students have the best possible listening experience. She also liaises closely with teaching and support staff and gives advice and training to staff to ensure that hearing impaired students are supported appropriately in school and have quality access to the curriculum. Sensory Needs Team: Hearing also maintain contact with parents; attend audiology appointments and feedback relevant information to staff; produce annual reports and attend review meetings. Steph is also supported by Karen Roberts, who is part of Elms Bank staff.
