Thinking about getting hearing aids or know someone who is? Join Bonnie O’Leary from the Northern Virginia Resource Center (NVRC) who will present a program about hearing aids from the consumer/wearer’s perspective. Her presentation will include a discussion about the impact of hearing loss on communication, the hearing evaluation, the differences between an audiologist and a hearing instrument specialist, types and styles of hearing aids, and how they can be used with other assistive listening devices.

Bonnie is a late-deafened adult who has been wearing hearing aids for 20 years. She is a Certified Hearing Loss Support Specialist and Outreach Manager for NVRC.

NVRC is a grant-funded, non-profit organization whose mission is “to empower deaf and hard of hearing individuals and their families through education, advocacy and community involvement.” Our programs are free and for information only; there are no sales involved.
