HLAA joined theatreWashington, the Disability Rights Law Clinic at American University’s Washington College of Law, the D.C. Arts and Access Network, and the Kennedy Center’s Accessibility Office in a collaborative presentation to highlight the ways in which theaters can welcome patrons with hearing loss.
HLAA provided written comments in response to the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) notice reopening the comment period for consideration of the Draft Regulatory Requirements for Hearing Aid Devices and Personal Sound Amplification Products (PSAPs).
HLAA, along with 10 other groups (collectively “Consumer Groups”), and joined by Deaf in Government (DIG), provided comments to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) on its proposal to amend its regulations requiring the federal government to engage in affirmative action for individuals with disabilities.
HLAA has completed another successful in-person meeting of our train-the-trainer program, N-CHATT (Network of Consumer Hearing Assistive Technology Trainers). During the weekend of April 1-3, 2016, trainees and facilitators gathered at the HLAA office in Bethesda, MD for the start of an intensive program to learn about and work with HAT. It also gave attendees the opportunity to learn more about how to conduct successful training sessions for those impacted by hearing loss.
