Communication Strate
39 Keep Street
Monday, Sep. 24, 7:00pm
If you’re a person with hearing loss, communicating can be challenging and exhausting as you strain to hear and make sense of what you’ve heard. This is especially true when someone talks to you from another room, more than one person is talking at the same time, or you’re tired and don’t have the physical and emotional energy to listen. Learning and processing our proven strategies together - for people with hearing loss and those they communicate with - will enable everyone to understand what it takes to have more fulfilling conversations. 
 
Learning these strategies is important because hearing loss is an “invisible disability” that touches on how the person with hearing loss operates in the world. From simple things like not realizing how loud they are, to shying away from social events because they’re concerned about not being able to participate - hearing loss affects their every day life. You can be instrumental in making your conversations better by utilizing these strategies.
