    Hi @margaret_rose66 and a warm welcome to the community! Please do have a look around and let me know if there is anything that I can help with. I know I sometimes have difficulties communicating with others if I am unsure they are looking at me, or if the communication is non- verbal (I am partially sighted)

    Hi @margaret_rose66

    Welcome! I am deaf in both ears and partially sighted, communication can be exhausting especially when I meet new people. I don't know much sign language and some people don't take time to speak slowly and clearly for me to understand which ends up leaving me frustrated. Luckily I have supportive family and friends around me who try anyway possible to help me understand. Do you have any communication issues?

    Ami. :)
