...Opening The World Of Communication To People With Hearing Loss...
If you are trying to cope with a hearing loss or know someone who is, The Rochester New York Chapter of the Hearing Loss Association of America is the place for you. Hearing loss is invisible; the effects it has on you and those who interact with you, are not. No need to go it alone!

*Newsletters are published Sept. through June
Chapter meetings are held the first Tuesday of the month, except September's meeting which is held on the second Tuesday of the month. No Chapter meetings are held in July or August.
Although hearing loss is often associated with older people, the reality is not hearing well is an “equal opportunity” condition. Young adults deal with issues with dating, higher education, employment, parenting and other aspects of life which are unique to their age group. Hearing Loss Nation, http://hearinglossnation.org, HLAA’s social networking site is a place to get together with others between the ages of 18-35 to share
experiences, ideas, suggestions,technology and more. Join and
meet others who share your interests and decrease the sense
of isolation you may be feeling due to your hearing loss.

Going to New York City and want to see a play?
All Broadway theaters now have Assitive Listening systems. At least two have hearing loops:
222 West 51st Street, between Broadway and Eighth
New York, NY
Richard Rodgers Theater
226 West 46th Street New York, NY
Only some off Broadway theaters have Assitive Listening Systems so you'll need to call to inquire
Remember if you go to a theater which uses an infrared system, it's line of sight so select your seat carefully. Try not to sit in the front few rows as they may be below the level of the stage and the emitter.
