Navigating a Hearing Loss
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Join Dr. Beth Wilson for this 3-part series on "Navigating a Hearing Loss." This introductory series provides basic information and strategies. If you have a hearing loss or know someone who does, this series can help make hearing loss less mysterious and provide some information on how to make hearing loss easier to deal with.  

Here are the details on each session:
 
Part I: The Basics - March 21st 
Basic information on hearing loss. This session will cover some facts and myths about hearing loss and explain the difference between frequency and loudness.
 
Part II: Technology Strategies - March 28th
Basic information on hearing technology.  This session will provide an introduction to hearing aids and assistive devices.
 
Part III: Communication Strategies - April 4th
Basic information on communication strategies: this session will provide techniques for making it easier to listen and to communicate with family, friends, and co-workers.
 
The sessions will be led by Dr. Beth Wilson, who was born with a hearing loss and is a member of the local Hearing Loss Association of America Central Massachusetts chapter.  Beth has a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering with research in speech processing, so she actually understands how things work!  She has had much experience in explaining her own hearing loss in a way that makes everyone comfortable (and a bit entertained).
 
There is no cost, but please register for the full series using our online registration form. Please call the Library at 508-393--5025 x5 if you have any questions. Dr. Wilson can also be reached at wilsondrbeth@aol.com. We hope you can join us!
