Conference for Hard of Hearing Employees and Job Seekers

The Hearing Loss Association of Pennsylvania is sponsoring (with support from the Pennsylvania Office of Vocational Rehabilitation) a one-day educational conference in Harrisburg on April 19, 2013, designed to provide hard of hearing employees and job seekers (including students entering the workforce) with information and skills they need to achieve communication access in the workplace.

The conference also has the objective of educating employers and human resources personnel about the many simple accommodations which enable hard of hearing workers to communicate on the job. That’s why “Working Together” has been adopted as the conference theme.

The cost for this conference is $40 for individuals and $70 for students with a parent. For a complete agenda or to register for this conference visit the Hearing Loss Association of Pennsylvania website.

Plenary sessions will provide information on the impact of hearing loss on work and life; workplace barriers that still exist more than 20 years after the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act; and a panel discussion allowing participants to ask questions of successful hard of hearing employees and their employers. An exhibit hall will showcase assistive equipment and resources.
