Post Include Deaf/HH in "Hallway" Conversations
on: July 18, 2012, 21:38

It's Monday, and you've just come back to work or back to your routine after a fun weekend. You start to tell all your co-workers or friends about your weekend....and you continue talking about it as you walk down the hall toward your office, meeting room, exercise room, etc.

If you are a hearing person, the above situation could be commonplace for you. But if you someone who is Deaf or Hard of Hearing, the above situation is indeed common, but signals a lack of access to important information. Important information, you say? But it was just hallway chatter, what is the big deal?

Equal access to the same information is the big deal. If everyone needs to get the same information, then the same information needs to be shared in an equal way to all people.

Don't leave your Deaf or Hard of Hearing friends or co-workers out of that weekend chatter. Tell them about your weekend too. You may find that you like the same activities, TV, vacation spots, scary movies, etc.
