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.

Hard of Hearing Communication Needs
We’ve seen it again and again, people often confuse Hard of Hearing (HoH) communication needs with those of Deaf Culture. While we admire the Deaf community and their accomplishments, and respect sign language, we need to create a movement to heighten the general public’s awareness about HoH communication needs.
Statistics show that 20% (1 in 5) of the population has a some degree of hearing loss. The vast majority (over 95%) are HoH and use spoken language. They live, work, and socialize in the hearing community and tend to be underserved. We can help your agency provide information, instruction, and awareness on lipreading, self advocacy, and other skills to help the HoH enhance their lives and live more boldly with hearing loss.
