- Make sure you have eye contact with the person before speaking
- If there is an interpreter, speak to and look at the deaf person not the interpreter
- Face the person to whom you are speaking that helps with lip-reading
- Stand in good lighting and avoid standing so that light is on the face of the Hearing-impaired person
- Avoid background noise whenever possible
- Move your mouth to articulate but don’t exaggerate
- Speak a little louder and slower than normal but don’t shout or drag
- Keep your hands away from your face and particularly your mouth
- Use lots of facial expressions and body movements
- If something is unclear, rather than just repeating the same thing, rephrase thoughts in shorter and simple sentences
