In particular, HLAA-CA's booth will provide information for those with hearing loss.  Attendees will learn about the latest phone captioning options, recent innovations in hearing aids, assistive listening devices, new technology, and HLAA services.  Throughout California, there are 18 HLAA chapters, which hold regular meetings for individuals to learn about techniques and equipment that can help people with hearing loss hear better on the phone, in meetings, while watching TV, in noisy restaurants, or at parties.  Hearing loss is a daily challenge that can be overcome.  Hearing loss need not be hidden.
