When Deaf and Hearing Meet: Until We Can Communicate with Ease - A work-book for Hearing People Connected to Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault, Disability, and Related Programs

General Material
Training Tools
Published Date
March, 2006

The purpose of this workbook is to provide some introductory information about language, culture, and respectful interactions between hearing and Deaf. Used as it was intended, this workbook will help the user feel more comfortable, confident, creative, and competent to provide respectful assistance to Deaf individuals. The primary focus of this workbook is on those moments when Deaf and hearing people try to connect, especially for the first time. These contacts might be at information and reception desks, in offices, or via communications technology. For our purposes here, there is a specific interest in the initial contacts when a Deaf person is trying to get information or request help related to domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking.
