The combination of limitations in hearing and seeing is labelled deafblindness. Some individuals with deafblindness are completely blind and have complete hearing loss, others have still have a certain ability to see and/or hear. While people with a hearing impairment or a vision impairment can partially compensate for their disability with the help of the other remote sense, this is not possible with a double sensory impairment. Therefore, deaf blindness has a considerable impact on almost all areas of life, making perception, communication, and independent mobility more difficult. As a result, affected individuals often need aids and support adapted to their specific situation.
