Introducing Hearing with Friends!

Hearing is our only shared sense.

How we hear affects communication just as much as how we speak. When someone begins to experience hearing loss, their first reaction can often be to try to hide it. Over time, this tactic leads to loneliness, exhaustion, and withdraw from social situations. Communicating well with hearing loss actually takes effort from both sides working together to utilize good communication repair strategies.

Research shows that people do better with managing their hearing loss when they have a strong social support system. Hearing with Friends was developed by The Audiology METHOD to give individuals with hearing loss and their frequent communication partners an active and welcoming community where they can receive personalized-evidence based care from an audiologist while also having an opportunity to learning from one another.

Did you know people with untreated hearing loss make half the income of their peers over the course of their career?

Hearing with Friends allows you to meet others going through similar situations as you through free social events. Some of the best communication repair plans for work, home, and relationships develop organically when you can share your frustrations and triumphs with your peers. Every person with hearing loss has to tackle their own unique challenges but when you can bounce ideas off others with hearing loss, it allows you to craft your own creative solutions.

Hearing with Friends will help you realize you are not alone in experiencing hearing loss. Did you know one in three adults in America experience hearing loss? Hearing with Friends allows our community in Colorado to come together to normalize hearing loss.
