“Front-line” staff will be the first in your organization to recognize and address the needs of visitors/patients/customers who have hearing loss and/or any other form of communication disorder that may impact the quality of communication between staff and the “visitor.”
Every project managed by Audio Directions includes the strategies and tools your staff requires to communicate effectively.
