Hearing Loops and Other Tools to Help You Hear!
Most people with hearing loss say they can hear just fine but that they have difficulty understanding speech even though they are using the most modern, up-to-date hearing aids and cochlear implants. Hearing in background noise, while watching TV or when attending religious services and/or theater performances are particularly difficult. This lecture will go beyond hearing aids and will help you become an informed consumer to get the hear- ing care and technology from your provider that will work for you. This January meeting will lead toand be tied into HLAA-Albuquerque's February meeting titled "Looping Your Own World".
Meeting starts at 10:00 am MST
