Connecting with confidence

As a teenager with hearing loss, you may feel like you're facing unique challenges that others can't fully understand. Hearing well helps build relationships, pursue passions, access environments, and obtain important information. Hearing well also helps with development in educational settings and growth throughout life. It's about creating connections to the world around you. At Phonak, we understand how important it is for you to feel good about yourself and to be confident. We know that for you, hearing is more than just perceiving sounds. That’s why we've designed a range of hearing solutions with your specific needs in mind.

Advocate for yourself

Have you prepared yourself to go to college? Here are the top 5 tips on how to best advocate for yourself when you start college by Emmy Cartwright, Phonak Teen Advisory Board member and CROS wearer.

1) Ask for all the accommodations you can

2) Realize that accommodations are everywhere

3) Don’t give up on what you deserve

4) Be willing to continue educating others about your needs

Discovering this confidence in myself and my hearing loss changed the course of my life. I was no longer afraid to do things! It led me to study abroad in Italy, nail my interviews for jobs after college, and best of all, start writing about my hearing loss. Since I put myself out there, I have connected with so many amazing people on social media.
