Social workers with deaf people

1. In many areas they can help with the provision of free environmental aids. Even if they cannot provide them free they can often advise on which is the best one to get.

2. They can sometimes help with problems at home (eg communication and financial) and at work.

3. I found my social worker very helpful.  She gave me lots of advice on what sort of equipment might be helpful and encouraged me to join lipreading classes.
