Ober's mom, Loretta, tweeted a photo of the note, which said:
Hi good morning Ashley, my name is Janna and I will be your flight attendant on today's flight to JFK.
There are two buttons above your head a yellow one that controls the reading light and a big gray one with a person on it, that you can use to call me, if you need anything.
In the case of emergency the nearest exit is behind you. Those are our over wing exits.
Please don't hesitate to ask if you need any assistance. Again my name is Janna and welcome aboard our CRJ200 aircraft.
-Your flight attendant

Ashley was reportedly touched by the note, telling WJLA-TV, "Communication access is most important, to try to make any effort for deaf people, to make them comfortable instead of making them feel afraid."
Delta Air Lines did not immediately respond to Business Insider's request for comment.
