Working on becoming more Deaf Friendly
Chamber guests and staff were provided resources and practiced some signs that will help all become more welcoming to deaf clients and customers at June’s Member Expert Event, hosted by Deaf Friendly Biz.
Participants were given an overview of “quick signs” and techniques that are helpful and friendly to hard of hearing customers, business associates, employees and more. Jamie Duncan, (owner of Deaf Friendly Biz) also provided some information from the ADA regarding employing hard of hearing employees.
