The Western Colorado Chapter of Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA) was
awarded a grant from the Colorado Commission for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing in the
amount of $7,562. A portion of the grant funded the purchase of three pieces of Hearing
Assistive Technology (HAT) to be used for demonstration and outreach.
We need volunteers to help us share information about Hearing Assistive Technology.
The training will show how to set up and use the equipment purchased:
UBI duo – a device to assist communication with someone who is deaf or non-oral
Tabletop loop system – a portable loop device with a small range
Personal listening system – an assistive device for personal use
We will also provide information about the mission of the Chapter and the national
organization, with the goal of reaching out to individuals, businesses, service providers,
and government agencies in western Colorado to create awareness of technology,
services, and information available to people who are deaf and hard of hearing.
If you know of an organization or business that wants to schedule an outreach meeting,
please contact us. Please note, the chapter is not selling any equipment; we simply
want to make businesses and agencies aware of potential devices to help consumers
and clients, as well as provide education about HLAA and our Chapter.
We will serve light refreshments.
An induction hearing loop and captions will be available.
People of all ages and all types of hearing loss are welcome!
Please let us now if you can attend so we can plan for food and seating.
