HLAA KY Home Chapter February 2021 Meeting Recording - Cochlear Implant Forum
In this virtual forum video recording, members who currently have a cochlear implant talked about their hearing loss, their decision to get an implant, and their experiences since. The forum provided a great opportunity for people to learn more about cochlear implants from a consumer viewpoint. Present at the forum were members with implants representing all three CI providers. At the same time, manufacturer representatives were present, and an audiologist in the background to answer questions if needed. The forum provided a practical approach to learn more about cochlear implants from the perspective of a consumer, allowing participants to discuss their experiences and ask real time questions to CI providers and representatives.

HLAA KY Home Chapter October 2020 Meeting Recording - "Have You Ever Thought About Having A Hearing/Mobility Assistance Dog?"
Hearing Assistance Dogs are taught fifty skills and can perform two hundred tasks. Mobility dogs can open and close doors as well as retrieve and carry small items. Hearing dogs are trained to respond to household sounds such as a ringing telephone, appliance buzzers, smoke and security alarms, doorbells, a crying child, sirens or any other sounds that the client needs. Since many people with hearing loss have balance and mobility issues, they can request a dog trained in both areas.
