Communicating With Deaf Individuals
Useful For: Audiologists, Disability Services Professionals, Employers, New Users, Teachers, Vocational Rehabilitation Professionals
The ability to communicate defines us as human beings and as a society. It forms a foundation for decision making and relationship building. Communicating with deaf individuals is an achievable goal, even when accommodations (e.g., interpreters) are not present. The tools available to us are considerable and limited only by our creativity and desire to communicate.
