14 Mar Be your own Hearing Health Advocate to maximize communication!
At Hearing Institute Atlantic, we recognize that mazimizing someone’s hearing potential does not start and end with approriately fit hearing devices. While hearing technology is necessary in many cases to provide the signal we need to communicate in an optimal manner, there are many other factors that improve someone’s communciative success. One of the most important factors is sharing with your communication partner that you have a hearing loss and how they can help you hear the best you can.
Gael Hannan, a hard of hearing author that writes an excellent blog, wrote an easy to follow article on how to be your own hearing advocate. Who better to give this advice than someone who lives with hearing loss everyday.
Please take the time to read this article, and share with your loved ones. Little things can make a huge difference in your communication!
