This research will begin with the statement that assessment of children who are deafblind / multi-sensory impaired is challenging because of the diversity of the population, including varying degree of vision and hearing loss, and the presence of additional disabilities. These disabilities both affect and interact with each other. So the development in these children cannot be studied and understood separately or simply by adding the effects of individual disabilities. There is a lot of subjectivity about the disabilities of children associated with a particular condition and the effect of external factors on the response of the children. The assessment of these children must address the complexity of their needs including communication, vision, hearing, cognition and motor abilities with respect to the priorities of each and every child. Such a holistic assessment is fundamental to the quality educational programming for the child. The findings of the study will be supported by recent examples of pupils observed during the course of this study, to lend more credibility and document first-hand experience and evidence of the phenomenon. Lastly, various strategies which would enable the pupils to access and improve their learning will be discussed at length along with a comprehensive reasoning behind the choices made and their effectiveness when implemented. The author’s role in relation to this project was chiefly concerned with observing and working with a pupil. It was important to collaborate with the support staff as they could provide additional information about the pupil. It was very fortunate that my colleagues fully supported this project and wanted to find a way of improving opportunities for better learning of the pupil. The aim of this assessment is to determine the functional vision available for communication and education and to propose methods of enhancement and compensation to circumvent the visual problems and enhance development for the pupil.

The aim of my professional practice is to become well versed in terms of how to support pupils with multi-sensory impairments. My initial concern regarding two particular pupils was that due to cognitive, visual, and physical impairment, they had restricted opportunities to learn and develop.
The author tried to point out the various challenges that were presented to me during the course of my observations. Finally, various strategies which would enable the pupil to access and improve his learning will be discussed at length along with a comprehensive reasoning behind the choices made and their effectiveness when implemented. His role in relation to this project was chiefly concerned with observing and working with a pupil.
What is also important to understand that it can also be rewarding for the carrers also. The different behavioral, psychological, cultural and social aspects which foster children often adapt from their new family can really provide effective means for the children to understand the life and the society in more mature manner.
As a new teacher, learning to work cooperatively and collaboratively with others to address the needs of pupils was not an easy task. However, over time I learnt that collaboration is actually a meaningful tool because of the synergy that it creates leading us towards a mutual goal that we want to accomplish.
Those who do and go on to show empathy for others are usually categorised as "normal." Most noncommunicators, i.e. autistic children, have no discernable disruption in their minds, but given the acceptance in society of what is normal, they are not considered normal children.
