Teaching coping strategies: meet one-on-one in our office or at a work site or home to explain the resources and services available in Texas.

Case management: we work with each individual to help them access the services they need.

Assistive technology center: where people with hearing loss can see and try various telephones, listening systems, and alerting devices for the workplace, education and home settings.

Workshops & presentations: We will present on a wide variety of topics related to hearing loss. We do in-service presentations to school staff, hospital staff and other organizations.
