How can you help a deaf person?
Try an assistive listening device, like a personal amplifier. Provide your friend with the key word of what you said—write it down or spell it if necessary. Dont get frustrated and say, Never mind, its not important. This can make a person with hearing loss feel worse. Patience goes a long way.
