COMMUNICATION GUIDELINES
When communicating with a deaf or hard of hearing
person:
• Get the deaf or hard of hearing person’s attention
first (tap gently on the shoulder or wave your
hand).
• Establish eye contact with the deaf or hard of
hearing person.
• Sign the manual alphabet to fingerspell names and
other key words for which there are no signs listed in this brochure.
• Use natural facial expressions, gestures, and
pantomime (e.g., negative words accompanied
by shaking of the head).
• Speak directly to the deaf or hard of hearing
person at a moderate pace while signing.
• Make sure your mouth can be seen.
• Rephrase the sentence if you are not understood.
• When all else fails, write it down or draw a
picture.
• Most importantly, remember that patience is a
language we can all understand.
