Asking for Accommodations: Oct 15, 2016

Asking for Accommodations

keep-calm-and-advocate-on

One of the difficult aspects of having a hearing loss is asking for the accommodations we need to be included in whatever we are attending. Whether it is a weekly bridge group, a family dinner, worship services, a political debate, a theater production, a television or internet broadcast – we need help to participate in a way that is meaningful to us.

Our HLAA meeting this week will help you phrase those requests in ways that are most apt to get you the results you want with the good-will you need. We will spend part of the time composing our personal requests, so bring your laptop or tablet to make that easier for you to do – we’ll also have paper and pen available for everyone. Kathy Evans is the presenter.

If there are specific questions that you would like her to address, please email us ahead of time so they can be included in the examples. (hearinglossutah@gmail.com)

Our meeting is Saturday, October 15 from 10 AM to Noon. We’ll be in the Conference Room at the Sanderson Center, 5709 South 1500 West, Taylorsville. We’ll have light refreshments and time to visit with each other, too.

Hope to see you there!
