Gallaudet University’s Doctoral Degree in Audiology Program will hold a “Hearing Assistive Technology (HAT) Assessment Day” at the University at 800 Florida Avenue, NE, Washington, DC in the Sorenson Language and Communication Center (SLCC) building on Saturday April 1, 2017 from 8:30 AM to 2:30 PM.

The purpose of the day is to help you assess your communication needs and “test drive” Hearing Assistive Technologies that can improve your communication at home, work, and leisure.

There is no cost for participation in this program, and no obligation to purchase anything from Gallaudet. However, you must pre-register for the program to participate. Register quickly: maximum capacity will be 15: five participants for each of the three sessions.

You can sign up for one of three 90-minute sessions at 8:30 am, 10:30 am or 12:30 am on Saturday April 1. Each session will begin with coffee, snacks and an informal introduction. A team of two students will work with you for up to 60 minutes to explore your communication needs and technology options.

As an added bonus, each participant will be provided with handouts of basic HAT information and an opportunity to order the purchase of desired hearing assistive technology items “at cost” to Gallaudet.

All of the students and faculty will be able to communicate with you in either ASL or spoken English, and an FM will be provided upon request.
