Welcome to my World – my experience with hearing loss
In this interactive and participatory 4 hour workshop, Kimberly Parker will educate audience members on issues that affect people with hearing loss and their family members. Utilizing powerful images, compelling stories and humor, Kimberly will share her personal journey making the transition from hearing, to deaf to hearing electronically with cochlear implants. During a “working lunch,” you will get to experience for 1 hour what it’s like to have a hearing loss. Kimberly will also share communication strategies and resources and challenge you to think about what you want to commit to “for yourself” moving forward.
The class is sponsored by the Washington State Office of Deaf and Hard of Hearing (ODHH). For more information go to the ODHH website.
