The Hard of Hearing Program Team travels throughout the State of Arizona providing outreach and education to consumers and professionals. From cradle to grave, we assist the hard of hearing community and their families, educators, co-workers, and other professionals. We frequently share information and resources with and about the hard of hearing person.
