We held an extremely successful workshop in May 2017 to assist hearing impaired people and their 'significant others', or partners, family and friends understand and cope with the effects of hearing loss. During the workshop we covered the psychological effects of hearing loss, communication rules, hearing aids, technology that can assist communication and harmony in the home. There were opportunities for discussion of the problems and sharing of ideas in how to solve them. To complement the Workshop we launched a special publication 'Communication with the hearing impaired mainly in the Home'. Please email bhacanberra@gmail.com if you would like an electronic or hard copy.

 

We are proud to say that following on from our success in winning the Maree Green Shield in 2015 we won it again in 1916 with the largest increase in membership Australia wide. This was announced at the BHA National AGM in Melbourne on the 7th October 2016.
