~~~~~~~~NOW TO INTRODUCE YOU TO THE THREE CT CHAPTERS~~~~~~~~


The chapter that meets in Hartford CT is called:

HEARHEREHARTFORD CHAPTER

Website: www.hearherehartford.org

Our Goals: to empower teens and young adults to overcome their everyday life challenges associated with hearing loss. We aim to do this using a mentor model.

Mentors participating in our chapter are all successful, hearing impaired adults who freely share their experience to provide hope, inspiration, and support to our young members. With support of dedicated mentors, as well as Teachers of the Hearing Impaired, our Chapter strives to help our youth move toward acceptance of their hearing loss and find strategies to manage it in everyday life situations. Contact person: Terri Bedard

INFORMATION ABOUT THE Eastern CT chapter

The EASTERN CT chapter meets on the 3nd Saturday of the month at 10:00AM -September thru June- (July a picnic)We do have a holiday party in December.

Meeting place is at The UConn Campus in Storrs CT at the Phillips Communicatin Sciences Building- 2nd floor.

Contact person is Randy Kirsch, contact information below
Our meetings are an educational experience. Most of our meetings are with speakers who are professionals in the area of hearing loss.
Please come join us for fellowship, information and self-help support. Everyone is welcome.

We use a CART transliterator (similar to a court stenographer)- supplied by the Audiology Dept at UConn to provide the captioning for what is being said. (see picture at bottom for example of how captioning works)

For those who utilize the "T" coil function of their hearing aids, we have installed an inductive loop system to help with your hearing needs.


For additional information, please do not hesitate to contact Randy by phone at 860-659-8082 or by email at hlaaeasternctchapter@cox.net. I welcome and encourage comments, questions and suggestions for programs and projects and ideas that will make our Chapter the best we can be and to do the most we can do to give back and make the world a more accessible place for people with hearing loss.

Contact person: mczola@optonline.net or Peg at (203) 656-2733

During our 18 years of existence – our chapter’s steering committee has striven to keep you informed on various topics regarding hearing loss!

We have had programs and events especially tailored to offer you- a person with hearing loss, meetings- both informative and constructive- and to meet other hard of hearing people in a social setting – with our main objective designed to focus on you—the person.

NO PROGRAMS WILL BE POSTED HERE FOR THE FORESEABLE FUTURE


OUR WEBSITE IS DOWN- HOWEVER- We encourage all to continue membership in the National Chapter, and for those so inclined- to travel up to UConn to the Eastern CT Chapter’s meetings.
It has been a rewarding time for those who have unselfishly contributed to our success. We thank the officers-both current and in the past, members of the steering committee, our terrific speakers and our advertisers for their past support!
