I am a hearing person who works in local government. I am just beginning to learn BSL, and am very interested to know what others on this list consider would be most helpful, if they had to make a person-to-person visit to their local Council.

From my experience when going into any place to get information, the person needs to be "deaf awear" so that I am made to feel comfortable when trying to communicate.
IF the responce to my query, when I explian that I am deaf is a head lowered mumble, then the conversation can only go downhill.
