This year’s theme is Action for Hearing Loss: Make a Sound Investment.
Tracy Henderson from Life Unlimited Hearing Therapy spoke to our Here For You Coffee Group this morning about how organisations and individuals can communicate effectively with someone who has a hearing loss.
Some of those tips included making sure the individual with a hearing loss knows you’re talking to them, face the person you are speaking to as it improves their chances of hearing you, and think carefully about the speed in which you’re talking.
