about this program:

Accurate communication exchanges are critical to creating and maintaining quality relationships in the home, the workplace, and the community. After a decade of working with people who are frustrated by hearing loss, Dr. Jessen has found that most of her patients and their family members experience similar communication challenges. While hearing aids and hearing assistive technology have improved drastically over the past decade, they remain only a partial solution to communication breakdowns. Communication is a complex puzzle that can only be solved when all the pieces are placed properly.

This presentation will teach participants how to apply communication strategies in several of the most difficult communication situations. Special attention will be given to the various hearing assistive technologies (HAT) that are available today, and how those can be utilized in various situations.

The stories, education, and practice provided by this seminar will ensure that each participant is equipped with effective communication tactics.

CART provided.  Parking vouchers  available to attendees.



  1. Will ASL ever be part of program of communication management to help facilitate full natural communication inclusion?

    • Yes, I suppose. But American Sign Language (ASL) is usually not in the repertoire of the Hard-of-Hearing.
