      Beyond the Hearing Aid: Shakers, Lights, Personal Amplifiers, and iPad Apps

      Joan Marcoux, Communication Access Specialist, New Hampshire Dept. of Health and Human Services and Stacy Driscoll, Assistive Technology Specialist, Institute on Disability, University of New Hampshire The prevalence of hearing loss essentially doubles with each decade of age. As a result, nearly two of three Americans ages 70 and above have a clinically meaningful hearing loss, and yet only about 15 percent of people with a hearing loss in the United States use a hearing aid. At the same time, technology is continuing to advance rapidly, and newer devices, such as hearing loops in public spaces and hearing applications built into smartphones, have tremendous potential to help people communicate better. Please come and learn more about both old and new technologies and resources for people with a hearing loss. Thursday, May 30 3:00-4:30 p.m. Auditorium A and B
