Human Relations and Development Name: Course: Lecturer: Institution: Date: Human Relations and Development Speaking loudly or shouting to a deaf, blind or a person speaking a different language is wrong. This portrays different pictures to the disabled person or the people watching. In many communities, shouting to a person implies that one is either commanding the person or abusing him or her. Additionally, shouting to a disabled person does not help because they might be using another form of communication. On the other hand, one looks foolish when shouting to a blind person or a person of a different language.
Therefore, people should understand this mistake and avoid it. In order to avoid this mistake, the first thing to do is recognize and respect the deaf people. For instance, one should recognize that they have similar rights like anybody else (DuBrin, 2001). Therefore, nobody should represent them in making their own decisions. They are able to do so by themselves. When a person appreciates them, he or she can now respect their decision whether right or wrong. For instance, in a work place a deaf person might simply want to confront the manager because of poor pay. The wrong thing to do is to shout at him or her.
This will appear as if the deaf person is being given a command. On the other hand, he or she might not understand what is being communicated to him or her. Therefore, respect their decision and appreciate them since the disabled people also have similar rights (Lesikar, 2010). Finally, learn how the other cultures communicate. For instance, some deaf people read lips while others use sign language. Blind people may use brail for communication or they can hear well. This is because their hearing has not been impaired. In the situation where the person is speaking another language, the best thing is to find is that common means of communication (DuBrin, 2001).
This way nobody will have to shout or speak loudly at one another, making everybody look like a fool. For instance, one should speak fluently to a blind person or another person speaking a different language, in the language he or she can understand because their ears have not been spoilt.
