 Talk directly to the person with the disability, maintaining eye contact, even if he/she is using an interpreter or personal assistant.
 Encourage the person with the disability to express his/her own opinions, even when parents or friends feel they can speak for the individual.
 Ask if assistance is needed rather than assuming it is. If the person says, “No, thanks,” don’t pressure him/her to accept help anyway.
 Use a normal tone of voice. If the person cannot hear or understand you, he/she will let you know.
 When talking with a person with a cognitive disability, speak in simple, clear sentences. Remember that simple language does not mean childish language.
 When appropriate, ask the person to put in his or her own words what has been said to confirm understanding.

Hi there. I found it is really impressive that telehealth is so powerful, far beyond my imagination! It turns out telehealth covers so many themes, including the telehealth modalities (e.g., video, asynchronous), clinical topics (e.g., chronic disease management), telehealth function (e.g., remote patient monitoring, consultations). Could you help me with its effectiveness? It seems impossible for me to summarize.

Hi there. While it sounds like data visualizations are so valuable, I wonder if there is any weakness about it that social workers should keep in mind?

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?

I have designed a large-scale survey about the life satisfaction of low-income families in Hong Kong. Is it appropriate to use the electronic survey through mobile phones?
