Deafblind policy guidance

Devon County Council has a duty to follow the national deafblind policy guidance (under Section 7 of the Local Authority Social Services Act 1970) when a child or adolescent has a combination of visual and hearing impairments which impacts upon their development.

The ROVIC Service undertake these assessments for children and young people up to the age of 18 years old. You can read more about the Deafblind policy we follow here.

If you would like to discuss the deafblind policy guidance further please contact us.

Information and support is also available from Deafblind Enablement, Deafblind UK and SENSE.
