My new column, “Can You Help?”, allows LipreadingMom.com followers to share and answer questions with each other. This week’s question comes from a friend who can’t understand what the heck her daughter’s boyfriend is saying. Can you help?
Dear Lipreading Mom,
My daughter is dating a guy that has some type of social anxiety disorder. I can’t hear him when he talks. Most hearing people have to strain to hear him. I do not know what to do with this guy. I am about to tell him, “Look, why don’t we take sign language because I can’t hear you. If we both learn to sign then I will be able to at least understand you.” I am just about to check out whenever he comes in the room because it is fruitless. What would you do in my situation?
