If you have concerns about a child's hearing or vision development you are able to make a referral to the Educational Service for Sensory Impairment (ESSI). Conditions such as glue ear are extremely prevalent in the early years and the team are able to provide specialist teachers qualified to work with children and young people with hearing, vision or multi-sensory losses.
