I am deaf having lost my hearing as a young adult and these days I wears two BAHA’s to help me hear,
With them in I can hear normally and I am also a very good lip reader, so there is no need to shout or talk with over emphasised facial expressions
If you have any disability I will be there to help just ask. Dance is for all.
