January 17th Meeting: Self-Advocacy

Our next meeting is just 10 days away on January 17th from 9am-11am at the Sanderson Center for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing.  The meeting is hearing accessible with CART and a hearing loop.  Our topic this month is Self-Advocacy.

I (Chelle) attended a Deaf Advocacy Workshop last October and we can apply a lot of that to hard of hearing advocacy. Here’s some of what I’m going to share with you during my presentation:

  • How to advocate
  • Ways to self-advocate
  • Self-esteem and self-determination
  • Preparing for Self-Advocacy

Bring your family and friends or come because you know someone who is hard of hearing and could use a little help.
