Meet the A team! The hearing aid and the seeing eye

I am the hearing aid and Mom is the seeing eye. I hear for us both and she sees for us both.

For the most part, our team of two works very well together. She tells me and describes everything to me as we walk around in the mall or eat in restaurants. She does not miss very much and her descriptions are complete. She is the seeing eye.

She describes what people are wearing, what is on the display racks, and whatever else she sees as we travel around.

For me, as the hearing aid, I do my best to tell her what people are saying and asking. My job is to ensure that she knows what is being said and what is being asked but I need to ensure that she hears me. This means that I need to go very close to her and articulate as best as I can.

This is hard work but I do not see any other alternative. This is the hearing aid and the seeing eye at work.

I'm Donna J. Jodhan, your friendly accessibility advisor, wishing you a terrific day!
