  Beyond Hearing Aids

Presented by Juliëtte Sterkens, Au.D.


Hearing aids and cochlear implants may not solve all your communication problems. You may still have difficulty hearing the television, your alarm clock, a knock on the door, callers on the telephone, events in an auditorium, or communication in an extremely noisy situation, your partner's voice while cooking in the kitchen or driving in your car. Assistive devices can be useful in these circumstances. Join us for a session where we will explore the reasons for and a variety of assistive technologies and communication techniques, from low to high tech, to help you deal with situations that are important to you, so you can live your life.

Juliëtte Sterkens, Au.D. is all about helping people hear. As an audiologist in her own practice, she treated patients holistically, providing information about assistive listening devices beyond hearing aids and support resources like HLAA. Juliëtte is the national hearing loop advocate for the Hearing Loss Association of America and travels the country educating consumers and hearing care professionals about hearing loops. Her efforts and the involvement of hearing loop users and advocates has resulted in 600+ hearing loop installations throughout Wisconsin and hundreds more all across the States.
