Hearing Loss Association of Santa Barbara January Meeting
- Posted by Danny Tubbs for HLA-Santa Barbara
Hearing Loss Association of Santa Barbara January Meeting. (Please see our
monthly newsletter attached).
Our meetings will now be held on the second Saturday of the month!
January 8th Meeting: Please join us as some of our members lead several very
informative discussions in our January meeting. We will start with a 10
minute lip-reading session with Zelda Fields. Zelda is well versed on
lip-reading skills and tips to help you improve on this very important skill
we hard of hearing use to effectively communicate in the hearing world.
Claudia Herzog will discuss the loop systems, which can make your hearing
aids function as wireless assistive listening. We expect to have a loop
system at our January meeting, so every one with a telecoil in their hearing
aids or CI will be able to experience this fascinating technology.
Cherie Alvarez will do a demonstration on personal FM system that utilizes
the telecoil technology. She will also discuss various hearing devices
available, including the neck loop, behind-the-ear headsets and regular
headsets, and how these headsets work with devices such as FM systems, cell
phones, iPods and CD players. You will have an opportunity to try these out.
Hope to see you there... Make sure to show up for the meeting hungry,
there¹s ALWAYS plenty of food!
NOTE: This meeting will be captioned!
