Note: hlaagroups.hearingloss.org will be down for maintenance on Monday, September 26th, starting at 9AM Pacific Time (4PM Monday September 26, 2022 UTC), for approximately one hour.
I have a meeting Wednesday morning with staff for the Senate Committee on Aging re: VA’s shortfall on compliance with Section 508 of the Rehab Act.
Some of you have significant more experience/knowledge on these issues than I do so I am requesting your input as to some issues you are aware of and perhaps willing to talk about.
I don’t know HLAA’s thoughts but I would like to offer them an opportunity to meet with us next week so they could have a more direct interchange of info with those of you willing to talk with them.
A few issues I plan on bringing up include:
Access to audiology medical exam results (I know some of you have mentioned that and I have had that problem)
Loop - I know nothing about this except how to spell it
I know there has been some chatter on other issues but don’t recall them now.
Did we ever decide on the survey? Maybe we can discuss possible questions from them for a survey.
For this meeting I will speak only for myself and no one else.
Let me know what you think and Carla please let me know HLAA’s position on inviting them and/or working with them to perhaps doing a survey for them.
See you all next week.
