“I highly recommend Chelle Wyatt. She is a passionate professional who managed the Hard of Hearing program at the Utah State Office of Rehabilitation (USOR). Chelle grew the program during her time as the manager including transitioning many classes to a virtual environment during the COVID-19 pandemic. She expanded workshops and educational opportunities statewide and increased the number of people accessing our services. As a person with hearing loss, Chelle understands the needs of individuals experiencing the same. She is knowledgeable about successful strategies, technology and accommodations that improve the lives of people with hearing loss.”

All our events are currently online.

We have extensive experience with online classes, meetings and events. Though technical glitches happen, we have been able to smooth out much of the process. This means we can help anyone, anywhere who has a computer set up with a camera and microphone. Smartphone apps also work! Advantages to online classes are:

  • Speech to text and remote CART options to keep it accessible.
  • People talk one at a time, which is valuable to those with hearing loss.
  • We sit closer to the camera and can use our lipreading abilities as support. (Whether we know it or not, we all lipread to some degree.)
  • It gave us a chance to meet people from all over the United States and beyond, opening up our community.
  • Our online events kept us social, active and participating.

Hearing Loss Peer Mentoring & Support

Hearing loss is the life-changing disability happening to you NOW, in real-time. Because we have lived it ourselves, we know you need solutions and information to help you begin adapting immediately. No matter what your comfort or acceptance level, we want to help you discover all of the possibilities and options for people with hearing loss. Apply what you learn at home, work and in public. We want you to manage your hearing loss instead of your hearing loss managing you. We can help you help yourself.

*Audiologists & Hearing Instrument Specialists, we have packages for your clients too! Patients and clients who are more comfortable, confident, and knowledgeable about their hearing loss get more benefit from their hearing devices. We’ve seen it!

Hearing Family & Friends

Hearing loss is a communication barrier. It not only impacts those who experience it firsthand, but also presents challenges for those connected to people with hearing loss. Everyone in the equation needs information, solutions, and strategies for better communication. Understanding communication techniques will improve your relationship and business relations. Learn how to improve communication with your loved one.

Hard of Hearing Communication Needs

We’ve seen it again and again, people often confuse Hard of Hearing communication needs with that of Deaf Culture. While we admire the Deaf community for all they have done, we need to create a movement so that general public also understands Hard of Hearing communication needs.

Statistics show that 20% of the population has a some form of hearing loss, 18% of those are Hard of Hearing and do not know, or have access to American Sign Language. Many of us live within the hearing world and we go about life very differently. Many Hard of Hearing individuals are in need of help, let us help you bring them through your agency and reach more underserved Hard of Hearing people.
