Upcoming dates and locations for the 3-part educational series based on NVRC’s publication:
I Can’t Hear You! Live and Laugh with Hearing Loss
Wednesdays, April 17, 24, and May 1, 2013 from 11:00AM – 12:00 noon
NVRC Outreach specialist, Marla Dougherty, presents a free 3-part series called I Can’t Hear You! for those aging into hearing loss.
Participants will learn how to recognize a hearing loss, understand testing and hearing aids, learn about good communication techniques and what listening devices are available through the state technology assistance program.
Marla Dougherty is a late-deafened adult who started to lose her hearing in her early twenties. Her personal experience with the effects of hearing loss on daily communication and advantages of hearing aid use, provides a foundation for offering support and encouragement to others.
As part of NVRC’s outreach program, Marla invites hearing people, as well as those who are hard of hearing, to join her program.
