R807 Summer 2018 Hearing Aids: Beware and Be Wise!
Tuesday, 11:50–1:15, June 26
One session
Instructor: Bonnie O'Leary

This session reviews hearing loss, the hearing evaluation, and the differences between an audiologist and a hearing instrument specialist. It explains the audiogram, the telecoil and bluetooth features, and looks at the types and styles of hearing aids, their benefits and limitations. Participants will also learn what devices can be used in conjunction with hearing aids and what is available for folks who aren't ready for the hearing aid adventure but want something to help them in specific listening situations.
Bonnie O'Leary is the outreach manager for the Northern Virginia Resource Center for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Persons, the area's leading non-profit for people with hearing loss. She is a late-deafened adult who has been wearing hearing aids for 20 years.
