Caption Telephone and Other Assistive Devices for the Hearing-Impaired
February 6 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
This program will explore caption telephones- what they are, how to obtain one, and the various models available. We will review other assistive telephone accessories for the hearing impaired. We will also discuss amplified phones, which have a larger volume range. We will demonstrate the CaptionCall technology, using the actual telephones. Melissa Pacey Mahaffey, Doctor of Audiology at the West Newton Hearing Center, has over 20 years of experience in the treatment of hearing loss. She has presented locally and nationally on the topic of hearing loss, its effect on communication, and the advances in hearing assistive technology. Register with the Front Desk at 617-796-1660.
