What do you do, if a deaf person approached you? Some people feel uncomfortable when meeting a Deaf person for the first time.

When you face a Deaf person, you don't know where to look, or how fast or loud to speak and feel uncomfortable and awkward. As you interact more, you will start to feel more comfortable and know how to make yourself understood and the best is to simply write down messages to each other, or text on cell phone.

I don't know. This has never happened to me before. I guess I'd smile at the person just as anyone else when meeting them for the first time.

Respect that they have a different means of communication.

Try to communicate as if they are normal but respecting that their language is not effectively verbal.

First reaction can be like this:HELP!I don`t know what to do or say.But then - Deaf person is person and there is no reason to be afraid and we can talk with writing.

I had the pleasure of guiding a deaf group round the museum. They were a group of about a dozen with one signer. We did try and keep them together as much as possible but they did want to wander off, quite natural of course. This left me chasing quite a few of them and trying to communicate without the signer. This ended up with quite a few laughs especially when my Victorian hat fell off !

I like talking to deaf people:it makes me appreciate the fact that I can hear.It's a weird thing that happens to me after talking to a deaf person;I speak more clearly and make sure I don't mumble as much.I even took up learning the sign-language alphabet so I can spell out my name when I talk to a deaf person.It's a learning experience for me all the time.
