Hearing Loss in the Workplace: Strategies for Success
three women in meeting with laptops
Managing hearing loss in the workplace can be challenging. Hearing loss stigma could make you worried about disclosing your disability, and even if you do, others might not know the best communication practices required to help you hear your best. You may struggle in some work situations, but thrive in others, confusing your co-workers and clients. You employer may not be aware of the many new technologies that can make communication easier for people with hearing loss. The good news is that there are many strategies for success, but much education is needed.

HLAA Board Member and author Shari Eberts shares these strategies in her blog Living with Hearing Loss.

Thank you to all the walkers, teams, donors, alliances, national and local sponsors who came out in support of the Walk4Hearing this year. We want to give a huge shout-out to our Walk chairs and volunteers; we couldn’t have done it without each and every one of you. 2020 is right around the corner, stay tuned for exciting updates!
