Do you communicate with individuals using their preferred method?
Individuals with communication disabilities may have cards explaining their preferred method of communication or be able to tell you or show you how to best communicate with him/her. It can get very loud in some shops and businesses. This can make it difficult to talk to and understand people who have difficulty communicating, particularly if they use an electronic communication device to get their message across. It’s a great idea to turn the music down, come out from behind the counter or find somewhere more private, if you think this could be a problem
Take notice of this and communicate with the person the way they ask or show you.
