The Truly Disabled People
By: Larry Socha
There are people in this world born into strife,
who can substitute love for their inconvenience in life.
Such as the blind who can’t see the night from day,
but yet they can see love in so many ways.
Such as the deaf who can’t hear a sound,
but yet they can hear when love is around.
Such as the mentally disabled who can’t comprehend,
but yet they can love until there’s no end,
but its the people in this world who think they’re the perfect kind,
these are the people who are mentally disabled, deaf, and blind.
A few things that will help those with hearing difficulties feel more welcome.
Having someone who is able to sign what is being said during a service is only the tip of the ice burg. However, not ALL persons who have low hearing use or know sign language.
Remember when speaking to a person that has low hearing but is NOT totally deaf. Speaking in a “slow, distinct, clear, but just at a slightly higher volume is better than shouting and fast speaking.
Obtaining a few radio receiver headsets with adjustable volume controls connected to the sound system (PA). Will make it easier for your deaf or low hearing friends to hear the proceedings.
Offering printed outlines, notes, etc. will also help in getting the important things you want to communicate across the soundlessness barrier.
Having pen and paper handy at the restaurant will make communication more comfortable for all concerned.
