I have total or significant loss of hearing in one or both ears. This means that I may have difficulty hearing and understanding sounds.
Face me, remove your mask, and speak clearly. Please don't shout or make exaggerated motions. You may also use writing or text to communicate with me. I may also communicate using sign languages such as ASL, ISL, PSL or another form.
Most of all, be empathetic and listen to my needs. Thank you!
