Webinar Now On Demand!

The workplace changed drastically during the COVID-19 pandemic, and health and safety policies such as mask-wearing, social distancing, virtual meetings, and the increasing use of telemedicine present new challenges to the deaf and hard of hearing. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) guarantees that reasonable accommodations are provided to this protected class. Hearing professionals can help patients understand what accommodations are available with new technologies and services

By attending the webinar:
• How workplace changes impacted people with hearing loss
• Technologies to optimize virtual meetings for people with hearing loss
• Tips and tricks for better communication when people are wearing face masks
• After the 45-minute presentation, there will be a 15-minute live audience Q&A.
