Consideration for Hard of Hearing
In the News
I completely understand the need for people to wear masks but as someone with a hearing impairment who experienced essential contact with someone this week wearing a mask I wanted to give my opinion on how you can make it easier.
You may not realise how difficult it is for people that are heard of hearing that rely on lip reading who then can't lip read if you are wearing a mask so please speak up a lot more and use hand movements too (you don't need to be able to sign but some hand movements are helpful). Sounds are so much quieter when wearing a mask. Also consider getting masks that have clear panels in them too.
