How did you communicate?

CHS will raise awareness about the communication barriers that consumers still encounter today. CHS will also highlight the varying ways that consumers communicate in everyday life, and how technology, changing societal attitudes and legislation have contributed to increased communication avenues for all people. During CHS's 75th anniversary, everyone, staff, consumers, is asked to look back and share how they communicated before the advent of many technological advances – email, social media, video calling, or teletypewriters -- and how they communicate now.

Technology Spotlight - Roger by Phonak

Is it time to update your fm system?
 

Modern hearing aid technology makes hearing and understanding in most situations enjoyable. But when you’re on the phone, watching TV or in a noisy place, following a conversation can still sometimes be frustrating. That’s where technology like FM systems comes in. FM systems are designed to link to your hearing aids to help you hear more in challenging situations.

Be an assertive communicator

Having a hearing loss doesn’t mean you need to take a backseat in life. See where you fall on our list of communicator types and with the right adjustments, you’ll be on the road to a lifetime of good communication.

How do you communicate?

CHS is sparking conversation about the communication bridges between people who are Deaf, hard of hearing and hearing. Tell us about how you communicate on social media using the hashtag #HowDoYouCommunicate. Everyone is encouraged to participate during Speech and Hearing Awareness Month.
