I’ve had hearing loss most of my life. For a long time, I focused on the loss of hearing. While that’s a part of it, I later learned it was more about communication. The key to successful living with hearing loss is communication; sharing my communication needs (being proactive) and knowing all my options with accommodations. It’s now my passion to share access to communication with others.
Hearing loss is a communication disorder.
For the past 20 years I have provided CART (Communication Access Realtime Translation) both in person and remotely. Working closely with our local hearing loss community has allowed me to understand my role as a hearing partner to my family members with a hearing loss, as well as how to best preform equal access to communication for individuals with a hearing loss.
