“I am an audiologist and a speech-language pathologist at Northeastern University’s Speech, Language, and Hearing Center. I would like to share information about our free aural rehabilitation sessions and our reduced hearing aid program that your members may be interested in.
“We currently provide two virtual aural rehabilitation sessions lasting 1.5-2 hours each via Zoom meetings. The sessions provide personalized training on communication techniques such as anticipatory strategies, using context clues, speech reading, lip reading, and environmental modifications. It also discusses advocacy skills, repair strategies, and tips for communicating during Covid-19. I have attached a flyer for you to view and share.
“Regarding the reduced hearing aid program, patients who qualify would pay $250 for one hearing aid and the remainder of the cost would be funded through the Boston Guild for the Hard of Hearing Endowment.
