What to Do

What NOT to Do

The holidays are meant to be a time of connecting with the ones you love. So this holiday season, remember to use effective communication strategies so that even those with limited hearing can feel included. Don't be afraid to ask questions, express your needs and preferences and educate your family and friends about effective communication. That way, you can arrive to the party feeling confident and excited to spend time together.
