Coming to Terms with Your Hearing Loss? How to Achieve Your Best Hearing Experience.
Pat Dobbs is a Hearing Loss Consultant and Advocate on a mission. Currently in her second year of Gallaudet University’s Peer Mentoring Program, she maintains a website, Hearing Loss Revolution, that offers stories of hope, information about technology and communication strategies, and tips for healthy adaptation to hearing difficulties.
Recently, Pat successfully completed a local pilot of her new workshop. She’ll offer a free on-line version of the workshop, and the format will be a Live Group Chat, i.e., WRITTEN TEXT ONLY (and, therefore, accessible). Participants will need a computer, wi-fi access and a little computer knowledge.
Participants will be asked to offer feedback on the workshop upon its completion.
Tuesday evenings 7:30 to 9:00 EST:
- March 28
- April 4
- April 11
- April 18
If you’re interested in participating, please contact Pat at email@example.com.

“I’ve had a hearing loss since I was 20. Through the years my hearing declined so much that in 2010 I received a cochlear implant. Today I hear in the average range, ‘Yahoo!’
“Through the years I was embarrassed about my hearing loss, and I seldom told people about it. If I didn’t hear what someone said, I was much more likely to “fake it” than ask them to speak to me in such a way that I could hear them. Consequently, speaking to people became difficult and painful. I dropped out of more and more social situations, became isolated, and depressed.
“But at one point, I stopped and asked myself, “Why don’t I just tell people I have a hearing loss and let them know how they can talk to me so I could hear them better?” After all, people talk to me so that I hear them, not so that I give the right facial expressions.
“I realized that I needed to change my thinking and be clear that there is nothing to be embarrassed about. Out of these thoughts came the Hearing Loss Revolution and the Nine Guiding Principles.”www.hearinglossevolution.com]
