How do we create a more equitable society?
Communication Access means that everyone can get their message across, regardless of how they communicate.
Communication accommodations are essential to ensure that we all have access to the same opportunities and resources. Let’s review some common forms of accommodations.
These services help us to ensure effective communication for everyone in our society. We can all help to make communication more accessible, whether that is by providing a sign language interpreter for a Deaf employee, captioning public videos on our social media platforms, or creating a process for Deaf customers to easily request accommodations.
You got it! Always ask a Deaf individual how they prefer to communicate.
Never assume how a Deaf individual prefers to communicate.
