Yes? Then help is needed. We need our eyesight and hearing to be able to develop and learn di erent things. If our hearing is bad, we make up for it with our vision. When we have vision problems, we trust our hearing. If both senses don’t work properly, we face big problems. “Deafblindness” is a term used when vision and hearing can’t compensate for each other. If this happens, the child needs special support at preschool, school and home.
