Transcript of Informative Speech
Do you know of or have met anyone who is deaf?
- American Sign Language (ASL) is not
universal and even changes state to state; "regional" signs.
- Using facial expressions and body language are very important while speaking ASL.
- Many deaf people learn English as their second language.
Steps to Remember when
Communicating with the Deaf.
If a deaf person has not responded to your verbal commands or questions, tap them gently on the shoulder, or step in front of them and wave, in order to gain their full attention.
If you don't know sign language, use your phone to type messages back and forth, but also make sure they understand what you are saying.
Make sure you maintain eye contact throughout your conversation, and if someone or something interrupts you, make sure you ask them to stop or wait.
Just because someone is deaf does not mean they do not have a voice.
