Our tools provide practical, easy-to-use strategies to open communication and engage clients in the self-management of their hearing loss.
By better understanding the needs and wishes of people with hearing loss, and incorporating their needs into the rehabilitation process, these tools can help increase client satisfaction, encourage collaboration, and help lead to better outcomes.
