How To Learn Sign Language

Safelite AutoGlass’ Deaf & Hard of Hearing/ Sign Language TV Commercial


I DON’T KNOW IF YOU’VE EVER TAKEN THE TIME TO LEARN
A LITTLE TINY BIT OF SOMEBODY ELSE’S
NATIVE TONGUE? THAT OPENS UP THE
DOORS TO TRUST. MY NAME IS KANYON. I’M A TECHNICIAN HERE IN
PORTLAND OREGON. EVERY MORNING, I GIVE EACH ONE OF MY
CUSTOMERS A CALL TO GIVE THEM A CLOSER ETA. AND WHEN I CALLED THIS CUSTOMER, I DISCOVERED THAT HE WAS DEAF. THEN I THOUGHT OF AMANDA. I’VE KNOWN AMERICAN
SIGN LANGUAGE SINCE I WAS ABOUT 8 YEARS OLD. IT’S LIKE MUSIC FOR YOUR EYES. AND I THOUGHT THAT WAS AN
AMAZING GIFT TO HAVE, TO BE ABLE TO COMMUNICATE
WITH THE DEAF. MY FRIEND KANYON ASKED
ME TO HELP HIM EXPLAIN HOW TODAY’S
APPOINTMENT WILL GO. HE WAS NODDING HIS HEAD AND
GIGGLING A LITTLE BIT. I EARNED HIS TRUST THAT
DAY, I GUESS.

  • Good to know !!! The workers need to be educated about how to communicate with deaf customers via phone call or in a person with an interpreter or to communicate thru writing or texting with patience and friendly always .

  • BRAVO!!!! Best commercial ever. I am super proud of you and compliance with ADA! Your company should be recognized.
