Cornwall Hearing Impaired
Technical Officer for the Hearing Impaired (Former Employee) – Truro, ENG – September 10, 2015
Prior to working with visually impaired people, I worked with hearing impaired clients.
I am deaf myself, no hearing on my right side, a little on my left of which I wear a hearing aid. Not a sign language user at first, but learnt this skill as I worked in the community.
At the time there were only two of us covering Cornwall.
The work was very technical as installing electrical systems to small items such as Vibrating Alarm Clocks.
Having to understand complex needs.
