Guest Speaker:  Jonathan O’Dell, Communication Access, Training and Technology Services Department’s Training Director, MA Commission on the Deaf and Hard of Hearing

Topic:  Assistive Technology for People with Hearing loss

The next meeting will be on Assistive Technology. There are times when the hearing aid or 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?

Jonathan O’Dell will be presenting on this very issue. He is the Director of the Communication, Training and Access Services at the MA Commission on the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. He is a gifted and entertaining speaker who, no doubt, will provide new information for you!

Please come and bring your questions and thoughts. CART (computer aided real time captioning) will be provided.
