Communication Strategies for
People with hearing loss and
People they communicate with
Goal of Workshop:
Improve communications with People with hearing loss through tested strategies.
Who is it for:
People with hearing loss
People they communicate with - friends, loved ones or co-workers.
I’m betting you know someone with hearing loss – a loved one, a friend or a co-worker. If you do, you may have experienced challenges communicating with them. They may misunderstand you, ask you to repeat yourself or pretend to hear you when they don’t. Either way, having a conversation may be challenging and frustrating.
If you’re a person with hearing loss, communicating can be demanding and exhausting as you strain to hear and make sense of conversations. Or you may get frustrated when you ask someone to look at you when they talk or speak to you slower, and then they forget and revert back to their old way of talking.
Communications is vital to our lives; it is how we relate to people. If the person with hearing loss doesn’t hear correctly, or worse, pretends to hear when they don’t, communications break down and as a result, so can relationships.
That’s why our goal is to provide our tested communication strategies for People with hearing loss and People they communicate with to improve communications.
As a result of this workshop:
· Your communications will improve – fewer misunderstandings and unnecessary disagreements
· More fulfilling and meaningful conversations
· Get a better understanding of what person with hearing loss goes through and what person they communicate with goes through to communicate with each other.
