About this learning opportunity

Keeping up with technology can be a daunting task, especially because it is always evolving. For someone with hearing loss, there are many options when it comes to (hearing) assistive technology and leveraging apps in a variety of settings. Whether the individual uses their residual hearing or is completely a visual/manual communicator, there are endless possibilities to connect with the world around them. Come and learn about CURRENT technology and useful resources that you can share with your colleagues and patients!

This learning opportunity is being provided through funding from Alberta Education.
