Read: ‘What’s it like to work in an office… when you’re deaf?’

Posted on June 1, 2012

A few weeks ago, I put the word out on Facebook and Twitter for people to get back to me about their experiences of office life. I’d been commissioned by the Guardian’s Careers section to write about this hidden side (to hearing people at least) of the world of work.

I got so many replies that when I collated them all, I had a document 20 pages long full of information, stories and tips. Many of them made it through to the final article, which can now be read on the Guardian website by clicking below…

Please do add your own experiences and thoughts to the article (you may need to register on the Guardian site first) and pass on the article to anyone you know who might be interested!
