Tuesday, 11:50–1:15, Apr. 9
United Christian Parish Reston
Instructor: Bonnie O’Leary
Hearing aids are not the only products on the market to help us with hearing. This program discusses and demonstrates examples of hearing assistive technologies: amplified and captioned phones, flashing alert systems, telephone amplifiers, TV listening systems, personal amplifiers, alarm clocks, etc. Virginia’s technology assistance program is also explained. Participants will be able to sample personal amplifiers during the presentation. Many of these devices can be used with or without hearing aids. No sales are involved.
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.
