I suppose how a DEAF person deals-assertively?- with the fact of deafness will show up in the interactions with the hearing people one knows. Pay attention-all the time.
Use a Cochlear Implant-if suitable? If one uses ASL et al than how does one communicate-use a laptop/pad to write?
Regressing to passivity-doesn't do much indicates what-non acceptance?
The above was suggested by Canadian Hearing Society/Toronto-adopted-from their course
ealing/Coping with your Hearing Loss.
I guess the question of "right people's interaction with you" suggests a great deal wisdom in so determining- Available?
