Recorded on: February 19, 2014, 8 p.m. -- 9 p.m. (Eastern) Presenter: Juliëtte Sterkens, Au.D.
Juliëtte Sterkens took a leave from her audiology practice to take on the position of Hearing Loop Advocate for HLAA, traveling across the country to meet with HLAA Chapters and audiologists about the importance of telecoils and how to get a hearing loop project started in their community.
Summary: Hearing loops, wireless systems that broadcast audio wirelessly to hearing instruments and cochlear implants equipped with telecoils, are becoming more prevalent at theatres, churches and across the U.S. thanks to the support of consumers, audiologists and audio engineers. Hearing loop installations are most successful when the persons who use hearing aids, audiologists and hearing instrument specialists, as well as the audio-acoustics companies/hearing loop installation companies all team together. The presenter will provide practical suggestions about how to forge the support in your area, and will share her advocacy materials (PowerPoint slides, handouts and PDF files of articles written for and by audiologists on looping) via Dropbox with each attendee, to help you be an educated hearing loop consumer and get your community in the loop!
