Assistive Technology for People with Hearing Loss – workshop

Saturday, April 7, 2018   10:00 am– 12:00 noon at the Northborough Free Library

The Hearing Loss Association-Central Massachusetts Chapter is sponsoring a presentation on Assistive Technology for People with Hearing Loss.

There are times when hearing aids or a cochlear implant may not be enough to help us in listening situations. For example, are you able to hear everything in a staff meeting your place of employment; are you able to fully use the telephone or, participate in a community meeting and many more situations?  Hearing technology can help.
