Tylin Promotions’ Deaf Sensitivity Training Class

Are those who are Deaf or hard of hearing (DHH) “normal?” Of course! This real-to-life, 4-hour deaf sensitivity training class entitled I Never Gave THAT a Thought! will show you that.

This exclusive and intensified learning experience will enhance your life and those of so many others that your life will touch.

If you are in the business world, it will open doors that you never thought possible. If you are an educator, this class should be part of Professional Development. If you are in the hospitality, travel or airlines field, including airport management, you’ll learn how to better serve guests who are DHH. Public Safety agency staff from police, sheriff, courts, fire & medical departments, hospitals and the like will be better trained to serve the community when they fully understand d/Deaf culture and the needs of those with any level of hearing loss. Everyone will learn of the existence of a vibrant and strong Deaf Community and of a unique Deaf Culture and what they are all about.  Comprehending what we teach helps those who are DHH to function at their peak.

Learning about what Audism is usually comes as a surprise to a great percentage of participants who complete our class. No, that is not a typo.

A new perspective awaits everyone, no matter what profession or industry you are in. Embrace, invite, and interact with the Deaf and Hard of Hearing communities. Read on to find out more and register for an upcoming training class. If you don’t see one listed in an area near you, it may be because the classes are contracted for by organizations to hold it on their premises or at a secure facility.

Call the office nearest you with any questions or to find out more or send us an email to DeafSensitivity@DeptOfEd.org. We know one question will probably be about what you thought was a typographical error written above as d/Deaf. That will be explained in the seminar, or call us. We’ll be glad to tell you.

Blindness separates people from things. Deafness separates people from people.
