The Bellevue chapter of the Hearing Loss Association has an interesting presentation scheduled for this Saturday (February 11th) at 1pm at Lake Sammamish Foursquare Church. The topic, “Being our Best (Hard of Hearing) Selves…effectively managing challenging situations,” will be lead by social worker and psychoanalyst Jacqui Metzer.
Jacqui has a long history with hearing loss and stated using hearing instruments as a young teenager. She got her first cochlear implant 14 years ago and has a lot to share about hearing loss, management and difficult communication situations. Jacqui also teaches to doctoral students at the University of Washington in a course titled “Listening to Hearing Loss Counseling Concepts.”
Additionally the HLA group informed us that CAPTIONCALL captioned phones are temporarily free during a promotion that lasts until February. Captioncall phones are both amplified and offer captions. To take advantage of this offer contact Adam Young at 206 295 7217 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope you’ll be able to join this group for a wonderful presentation!
