Dear Clients and Friends,
We hope Better Hearing and Speech Month finds you and your family well. CHC joins our friends at the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, founders of this annual milestone, in putting a spotlight on hearing and communication this month. The timing couldn't be more important.
Since the pandemic began and daily communication shifted from in-person interactions to virtual gatherings, CHC has recognized the public's urgent need for information on how to make these exchanges more accessible to people with hearing loss. One important purpose of our
Hear and Connect
newsletter is to provide a toolkit of solutions to help people with hearing loss connect through videoconferencing.
Among the resources we're sharing this week is
Expanding Videoconferencing Access for People with Hearing Loss
, a blog post that underscores the urgent need for people with hearing loss to have access to free captions when connecting virtually. You're encouraged to share the post and get involved
lp educate decision makers on this issue.
Of course, there's much more to discover below to help you connect and cope during this unique time in our lives.
