A very helpful website is Deaf Strategies, www.deafstrategies.org,
Deaf Strategies has been designed with hearing impaired people in mind. It brings together strategies that people with a hearing loss have found helpful to them in a variety of situations. We hope that people will be able to dip into this pot of ideas and what they find useful.
