Description

Reviews

Beginning by eliminating many of the misconceptions people have regarding deaf people and communication with them, this book explains and illustrates basic American Sign Language for medical purposes. True situations are included to emphasize the problems which arise with miscommunication and a lack of knowledge of deaf people and their culture. The word deaf is inclusive of any and all hearing impairments because of the language barrier and the cultural pride involved. Cultural aspects that have a direct bearing on medical treatment and understanding of the deaf patient are given so the reader may gain insight into this special group of people. Information is given for assistance in obtaining qualified interpreters in accordance with the laws and the guidelines for health care facilities. The glossary gives the reader clear and precise definitions for many terms used in working with the deaf.

"This booklet is an excellent reference for the health care professional who has a sincere interest in developing rapport with a patient whose main method of communication is the language of signs." -- Fran Herrington-Borre, Director, Austin Sign Language School
