Technology and Communication Strategies for Persons with Hearing Loss is a demonstration that helps Hard of Hearing individuals move from isolation to independence, by:
- Learning about supportive organizations where people with all degrees of hearing loss come together to share and learn – and where it’s okay not to hear well.
- Talk with others who have hearing loss.
- Learn about advocacy and the laws that protect you, and find out about local resources.
- Learn about the latest technology – hearing aids, amplified phones, CapTel phones, cochlear implants, captioning, hearing assistive technology, and more – all to help you live well with hearing loss.
- See how a hearing-friendly environment works to help you with your hearing loss.
All attendees can loan out equipment, on a first come first service basis, to see if the equipment is appropriate for their needs. Also, qualified attendees can apply for a FREE telephone thru the ATEL Program.
