Make and maintain eye contact and then approach. Waving: to get the Deaf person’s attention, wave your hand in his or her peripheral vision field. Wave casually; a frantic wave means something is wrong. Tapping: if you are close enough in distance to the person; a tap on the arm is a sure and preferred way to get a response. Flickering the lights gets everyone’s attention. This custom is equivalent to yelling for everyone to ‘listen up’. You can also use it to draw attention when you enter the room if his or her back is turned towards you. Pounding and stomping: these actions release vibrations; a Deaf person can feel them and turn to see its origination. Be careful if you have a habit of tapping your fingers or your feet as this will send the wrong message
