A dialogue with Lise Hamlin, HLAA event – Oct.19th

September 30, 2014 in Community Events

Come Hear about HLAA Support for People with Hearing Loss

HLAA’s seeks to open the world of communication to people with hearing loss through information, support and advocacy. It does so by working to assure that:

  • Hearing aids, cochlear implants and aural rehabilitation are affordable, accessible, and covered by Medicare, Affordable Care Act, and insurers;
  • Public and private venues, including all types of public transportation are communication accessible;
  • Television, Internet video programming, and movies make high quality captioning available;
  • Consumers have wide choices and access to captioned and hearing-aid-compatible (HAC), high-fidelity, landline phones and mobile devices;
  • Workplaces are communication accessible and welcoming to people with hearing loss.

Lise Hamlin, HLAA’s Director of Public Policy, will be open to talk about these and other HLAA activities and solicit your views about further ways that HLAA can be helpful. This will very much be a two-way dialogue.

Date and Time: Sunday, October 19, 2014, 2:00pm – 3:30pm

Place: DC Public Library at Tenleytown (large meeting room), 4450 Wisconsin Ave NW, Washington, DC 20016 (less than a block from the Tenleytown Station on Metro’s Red Line)

Nearly Half of Teens Showing Potential Signs of Hearing Loss

September 24, 2014 in Community Events

 

 

Business Wire
September 23, 2014

  • One in six teens showing symptoms often or all of the time
  • Nearly nine in ten engage in activities that may damage hearing

PISCATAWAY, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Teen hearing loss may be on the rise, according to a new study commissioned by Siemens Hearing Instruments. In a recent U.S. survey of 500 teenagers ages 13–19, 46 percent of teens reported experiencing ringing, roaring, buzzing or pain in their ears after engaging in risky hearing practices, including listening to excessively loud music and using lawn and power tools with no hearing protection. One in six teens admitted having these symptoms often or all the time. The nationwide survey was conducted by ReRez Research of Dallas, Texas to learn more about teens and their listening habits.

(See Graphic Poster in Original Article)

“Music has always played a central role in teens’ lives, but over the past decade, the ever-present earbuds attached to popular smartphones and portable music players have caused increasing concern among hearing care professionals”

The findings also revealed that teens are aware of the risks, yet still choose not to protect their hearing. Nearly nine in ten (88 percent) of teens admit participating in activities they know may damage their hearing, with listening to loud music being the most popular. When asked what their parents or teachers would do if they knew how loud their music was, 78 percent of teens confessed they would tell them to lower the volume or wear protective gear.

Learn More about Hearing Assistive Technology

Are you having difficulty fully participating in conversations with friends and colleagues? Are noisy restaurants (aren’t they all?), group discussions, telephone calls and formal presentations especially difficult and exhausting? Do you or family members worry that you won’t hear the smoke alarm, the phone or the alarm clock? Technology from hearing aids and cochlear implants to captioned and amplified telephones, loop systems, and other listening and alerting systems can make a world of difference.

Come and learn more. HLA-DC will host a presentation and discussion on hearing assistive systems by Dr. Zachary La Fratta, a locally-based audiologist who knows this rapidly evolving field well.

Date and Time: Sunday, September 14, 2014, 2:00pm – 3:30pm

In Cued American English, the 40 phonemes (sounds) that combine to form all of the words in spoken English are represented with 8 hand shapes and 4 placements around the face. Cued American English is used with many deaf or hard of hearing students in Fairfax County Public Schools and throughout the United States to give them access to English and to promote language acquisition and literacy.

D.C. Metropolitan Area

Shakespeare Theatre Company: Sidney Harman Hall (610 F St. NW, Washington, DC 20004)
Open-Captioned: Tuesday, August 26, 2014 at 7:30pm
A celebration in the art of storytelling, the STC presents The Winter’s Tale, one of Shakespeare’s late romances.  Traveling through time, visiting the austere court at Sicilia and the bright sea shore of Bohemia, two generations transcend torment and obsession.  The Winter’s Tale is a compassionate and dazzling saga that tells the tale of King Leontes, who is overcome with jealousy when he believes his pregnant wife, Hermione, and his good friend, King Polixenes, are lovers.  Director Rebecca Taichman, whose Cymbeline was “brimming with both heart and good humor” (Washington City Paper) and whose Twelfth Night was “gorgeously romantic … as a brand new as a first kiss” (The Downtowner) returns to direct this classic piece through imagination and wit.
To reserve tickets, please visit http://www.shakespearetheatre.org/about/ffa/index.aspx, email STCBox@ShakespeareTheatre.org or call 202-638-3863 (TTY).
