We have a new IT intern starting who happens to be deaf. I have never had any experience working with any deaf people, so it should be a pretty interesting and growing experience. In the brief time I met with her I noticed she did read lips a little bit, which should help, but a lot of things needed to be written down. She seemed pretty sharp, so she shouldnt have too much trouble actually doing the IT work, but communication could be an issue. Have any of you had experience working with deaf individuals, or have any advice on how to most effectively communicate?
