The unique, premiere Deaf Sensitivity Training Class I Never Gave THAT A Thought! was given in Suffolk County, Long Island, NY on TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 2019. It was a 4-hour, highly intensive class being brought back to the east coast. The Deaf sensitivity class on Long Island was followed a 1-hour module on TBI/ABI (Traumatic Brain Injury/Acquired Brain Injury) entitled Oops–Did I Forget THAT Again?
Other online LIVE, INTERACTIVE webinar versions of the training are available for groups and individual registration. You’ll find online dates on this website as they are announced. They are historically presented once a month.
Participants in the Deaf sensitivity training learn about the needs of those who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing! (DHH). Participants who complete the class leave with improved communication skills and a better, fuller understanding of one of the more common struggles that society endures: deafness. The understanding of the needs of individuals who are DHH is something that is too often ignored and misunderstood. The results are that this population is left vulnerable to life-threatening situations and possible abuse of being left behind in society. People who lack auditory and vocal acuity deserve to be understood just like anyone. Those of you who are in public safety such as hospitals, urgent care centers, law enforcement, fire/medical and other services whose charge is to protect, often have the most need to enhance and improve the services you provide to this population. Also encouraged to attend are court personnel, EMT squads, mass transit administrators, city, village and county personnel, etc.
