Holiday parties mark a great occasion to spread the word about hearing loss!
Your organization could combine a “leave your keys at home” driving campaign with a hearing loss campaign.
Hearing impaired persons would be encouraged to see an audiologist and get their hearing tested before going to holiday parities. People with hearing aids would be encouraged to remember to use them at the party. People who do not have a hearing loss could be reminded to consider the hearing impaired and use good communication techniques.
The movement could grow through the development of a website, brochures, and partnerships with other nonprofit organizations.
The opportunity to reconnect with friends and family over the holidays could potentially motivate hearing impaired persons to take action on their hearing loss.
