by Viewtalk Current Affairs

We visited Reading to find out what this town knows about Deaf Awareness issues, their experiences of a deaf person, what advice/tips would they give to someone who has never met a deaf person before or what they should be aware of when communicating with a deaf person and whether they know any sign language.
