What support do I need?
Deaf and hard of hearing people are individuals and will all have different experiences of hearing loss and communication preferences. Some people are comfortable using English as their primary language and choose to communicate through lipreading or writing notes, whilst others may communicate only in British Sign Language. We recommend that you ask your client which communication method they prefer and what support will best meet their needs. Our bookings team are experienced in the provision of a range of communication professionals and will be happy to discuss your requirements with you.
