I don't know if any of you gave seen the new advert where a young man with hearing impairment is " set up " by his sister". He walks through his town and people have been shown just how to say hello, and one or two small phrases . For the first time he doesn't feel excluded. It gave me goosebumps and made me think when I am at my festivals this year I'm gonna learn signs for hello and can I help ( after that it's gonna be writing and pointing) but at least I will make an effort. I know done of you have experience in this and wondered what your thought were as I think all us stewards at voluntary places should at least know hello !! Ps it's a wave with thumb pointing to your head beside your face ,waving left to right.
Talking of exclusion what are your experiences of this with your RA? There are still a lot of venues , although it's getting better, that won't or indeed can't change their buildings for wheelchairs.
Just thought it would be an interesting discussion. ??
Hope u r all keeping well! X
