3 Things - Tuesday, November 22

A more inclusive Thanksgiving Day for the deaf and hard of hearing.
  1. Find Your Guest’s Preferred Mode of Communication
    Do they need a microphone in the middle of the table? Do they have single-sided hearing loss and prefer a specific seat at the table?

  2. Interior Matters
    Keep the décor simple and lighting bright. No large table centerpieces. Eliminate any backlighting to avoid visual obstructions.

  3. Pick Your Entertainment Wisely
    Turn closed captions on the TV. Keep music to levels that are more comfortable, less scratchy, and allow for conversation.
