Deaf not Dumb

More often than not, deaf persons may reply with something which has nothing to do with what you asked/said. This is because the deaf person may have unknowingly misunderstood your question/speech. It does not mean the deaf person is dumb.In cases like this, do not hesitate to let the deaf person know that he/she misunderstood your question/speech – it’s OK! Do repeat or rephrase what you said, and ensure that the deaf person knows what subject you are talking about.
