Business Resources

Welcome to deaffriendly.com’s Business Resource page. If you’re here, it probably means you have a healthy curiosity about what it means to be a “deaf-friendly” business.  A business’ ability to give deaf-friendly service isn’t something that happens overnight or even naturally – rather, it takes education, awareness and consumer feedback. The more educated you are, the more deaf-friendly service you’re likely to give.

That’s why we’ve created this resource page providing you with links, documents, and downloads to help you on your way. Whether your business is serving food and beverages or providing medical services, you may find the following resources helpful as you consciously build a deaf-friendly consumer experience. These resources include simplified explanations of the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act), tax credits that may be available to you, tip sheets on how to communicate with deaf/hh people, videos and Sign Language vocabulary. If you know of a resource that isn’t listed (and you think it ought to be), let us know. Check back often, because we will be updating our resources as new tools are developed.
