Adjustment To Deafness:
Project Your Communication

1. Don't shout at a person with a hearing loss - it is humiliating and distorts the articulation (mouth).

2. Speak clearly and at a slightly slower pace.

3. Don't cover your mouth, chew food or smoke while talking.

4. Use short and simple sentences.

5. Rephrase if you are not understood.

6. Remember, only 8 of the 26 letters of the alphabet can be seen on the speaking lips.
