Hearing Loss Magazine March-April 2014 - (Page 41)

Zola leads the first half of the program by asking students how many of them know someone with hearing loss. (Typically, almost half of the students raise their hands!) She then presents "How to Communicate with Someone Who Has a Hearing Loss" in which she explains how people with residual hearing use assistive listening devices and shares five, key communication tips. Alan Gould presents the second half of the program, "Noise Isn't Cool," that stresses the importance of turning down the volume on TVs and MP3 players, and limiting time spent in noisy situations. The children learn that intensity and duration of loud noise are equal partners in producing hearing loss, and pick up tips for preserving their hearing. Pat Gould then explains how decibels are measured and their significance in preserving our hearing. Because of the positive response from students and their teachers, the three presenters look forward to expanding the program and presenting it to fourth graders in other school districts. Marcia is vice president of education for the Southwest Connecticut Chapter. Alan Gould is a former speechlanguage pathologist and past president of the chapter, and his wife Pat is a former fourth grade teacher. KENTUCKY Summer 2013 celebrated the collaboration between the Kentucky Commission on the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (KCDHH) and other organizations for people with hearing loss including HLAA's Kentucky chapters. Read the summer 2013 issue of the KCDHH Communicator newsletter for more at http://tinyurl.com/kupywmz.   Commission Executive Director Virginia Moore writes, "This summer has been an exciting one for KCDHH and the deaf and hard of hearing communities. In May we celebrated the 30th anniversary of the commission's founding. In July the Hearing Loss Association of America Kentucky Chapters held its first-ever regional conference. We were pleased to be invited to take part in the planning KCDHH Executive Director Virginia Moore (far right) joins HLAA Chapter Coordinator for Kentucky Ron Haynes (far left). Comedienne Kathy Buckley (second from left) was the conference keynote speaker. To her right is Paula Esterle, conference co-chair, former HLAA Chapter Coordinator for Kentucky, and past president and current historian for the HLAA Kentuckiana Chapter. and execution of the successful HLAA Kentucky Chapters' conference in Louis-ville. It is a reminder that sometimes the only thing standing in the way of moving a mountain is someone ask- ing the question 'what if we could move a mountain?' The key is collaboration. We accomplish great things when we work together." HLM Note to State Organization and Chapter Leaders Have you visited the HLAA website recently? Robust, new resources are available under the Support section. The materials provide you (and potential, future leaders) with more tools to help you develop HLAA organizations. The Leaders Wiki, previously used for leadership materials is now closed. View the newly-expanded section www.hearingloss.org/content/leader-support. Welcome State Chapter Coordinators HLAA welcome backs Don Senger as the state coordinator for northern California. He served as coordinator for the entire state of California for many years but is currently filling in as coordinator until the right person can be found to serve as liaison between the chapters and the HLAA office in Bethesda. Karen Utter in Washington state oversees six chapters in her reprised role as coordinator, a position she held from 1999-2011, and is the immediate past president of the HLAA Washington State Association. Sue Miller of the Rochester Chapter has been named the New York Upstate Coordinator. Thank you all!
