Deafness is an invisible disability
Learn about deafness and discover how you can make a difference to a deaf person’s life.
Being deaf can make many people feel totally invisible. It’s not an obvious disability as there are often no visible aids. And even if people know that someone is deaf, they don’t always know the best way to communicate with them.
Understanding deafness, the challenges it can cause and how deaf people communicate is incredibly important and can help deaf people feel less detached from the hearing world.
