Good morning to my beloved english teacher madam najwa and fellow friend.

        The process of communication between two people
is very natural and we greet and exchange pleasantries
without thinking twice. However, when it comes to people 
with disabilities, for instance, the speech-impaired, the 
 sight-impaired or the hearing-impaired, we feel some awkwardness.
Many people feel uncomfortable around people with disabilities.

Here are a few suggestions on how to get around these discomforts.

 When talking to disabled people, bear in mind that
they are normal human beings. Except for their disabilities,
they are no different from you or me. They do not expect
anything more than being treated with the same dignity, 
consideration, respect and rights as any other person.

   For people with physical disabilities, for example, 
a person in a wheelchair, offer your assistance sincerely. If
the offer is refused, do not insist. Do not attempt to push
the wheelchair without asking for permission. A person's
crutches, cane, walker or any mobility aid should not be
moved without consent. If the person is accompanied by
someone, talk to the disabled person rather than through
the companion. When talking to the person in a wheelchair,
try to talk at eye level. This shows your sincerity and respect
for the person concerned.
       When communicating with visually-impaired person, first
identify yourself to put the person at ease. Touch the person's
arm sightly to indicate that you are talking to him or her.
Talk facing the person and speak in a normal tone of voice.
One need not shout or go too near the person. Maintain a
comfortable distance. Let the person know if you are leaving
as you do not want him or her to talk himself or herself.
Be specific when giving directions,for example, the table is
 at three o'clock.

               People who are hearing-impaired might have different ways
of communicating. Use the medium of communication they
are accustomed to. If you do not know sign language, make
it clear. You can converse through an interpreter. But, look
at and talk to the person rather than the interpreter. Catch
the person's attention.

That's all for now. Thank you for lending me your ears.
