Communication Strategy #5
Eliminate background noise: such as radios, televisions, running water, and other people talking. Either move away from the source of the noise, or turn the volume of the noise down.
There can be much excitement this time of year, however let us not forget to protect our hearing.
If you are going to be very close to fireworks or loud activities, do not leave home without hearing protection!
Happy 4th of July!
HearSmart Audiology is hosting the next Hear My Dreams parent support group meeting on Tuesday July 9, 2013 from 7PM - 9PM. All parents and caregivers of children of any age with hearing loss of any type or degree are welcome to attend.
Hope to see you there!
Communication Strategy #4
Communicate in the same room: Do not try to have a conversation with someone who is in a different room. This will eliminate some of the frustration of having to repeat information.
