WHAT WE DO
The priorities for the Hard Of Hearing & Late Deafened program are to serve a specific population with a need for emotional support, coping skills and practical strategies as they deal with the everyday challenges of living with hearing loss.
DCARA’s HOH & LD program is designed so that individuals will gain an understanding on ways to improve upon, or change their knowledge, attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors, which, over time, will have an impact on their level of autonomy, self-image, self-advocacy and self-determination.
