Hearing Loss Awareness

When an individual has hearing loss they are not given a manual that explains how to adapt. In turn those without hearing loss are not given a manual on how to work with individuals who have hearing loss. Our objective is to help participants understand the causes, types and degrees of hearing loss. We want to educate those with and without hearing loss about the effects of hearing loss and provide participants with a real life experience when they take an unfair hearing test.

Participants will:

  • Understand the basics of hearing loss
  • Identify common signs of hearing loss
  • Understand and utilize People First Language
  • Identify barriers faced by individuals with hearing loss
