155F Self-advocacy for teens with hearing loss | Phonak

Self-advocacy

Self-advocacy and personal responsibility are keys to success. Advocacy means standing up for your needs and requires knowledge and skills. Start building your skills by reading and completing the materials below.

This checklist has suggested skills relating to personal health and medical information, hearing and other assistive technology use, and  accommodations.

This plan describes a little about who you are, your hearing loss, how you prefer to communicate and what technologies you use. Use it to start the conversation about your preferred communication practices with anyone whom may communicate with you. 

Print and complete this card and carry it in your 21E1  wallet in case you need to use it in an emergency or to explain how you best communicate.
