Many people do not understand hearing loss and/or deaf culture and the questions above are typical.
There are lots of little things that hearing people and services can do to make sure that they are accessible. A good starting point is getting Deaf Awareness Training – get a better understanding of what deafness is and how it impacts on a person and the society around them. Lots of organisations provide this, including Deaflink. Please get in touch if you want more information.
