How To Communicate with Hearing Loss

Communicating with hearing loss can be frustrating.  In addition to wearing a hearing aid, here are some simple strategies you can utilize to help make communication easier:

  • Face the speaker
  • Don’t multitask; focus only on what is being said.
  • Reduce background noise when possible
  • In restaurants, sit in a corner facing the conversation
  • Ask the speaker to slow down if necessary
  • Don’t try to listen from another room
  • Try to sit up front at meetings
  • At theaters, make use of the assistive devices
  • Make sure your hearing aids are functioning properly
  • Move closer
