Last night we were pleased to host 37 patients in an evening of education and advocacy during our first Advanced Patient Workshop. The workshop included five presentations by students from the University of Washington on current Aural Rehabilitation (AR) information. Topics included speech reading, environmental manipulations, LACE, advocacy and a crash course in anatomy.
A big thank you to the audiology students at the University of Washington and professor Lisa Illich for helping put together a fascinating evening. We know each person walked away with a greater understanding of communication, and ways in which they can enhance their abilities.
