Speaker: Mary Bauer
Job Title: Deaf/Hard of Hearing Specialist at Minnesota Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services (DHHS)
The Talk: “Clear Speech”
Mary will tell us about the simple fundamentals of clear speech. It makes so much difference for hard of hearing listeners, you may wonder why everyone doesn’t do it. Actually, we can – and it doesn’t take any special talent, just the willingness to make it a habit.
Mary Bauer is a Deaf/Hard of Hearing Specialist at Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services (DHHS), a division of the Minnesota Department of Human Services. She has been at DHHS since 1996. She provides consultation, information & referral, technical assistance, and training regarding issues related to hearing loss.
Mary is well-known for her presentations and she brings several aspects to her trainings – including her own experiences as a person who is hard of hearing.
She graduated from Augustana College in Sioux Falls with a double major in Elementary Education and Deaf Education and has worked with deaf and hard of hearing persons and their families since 1980.
Mary has spoken before to HLAA-TC and her talks are always informative and engaging.
This will be our last monthly chapter meeting until the new season in September (HLAA-TC doesn’t hold chapter meetings in the summer). However, the HLAA-TC book club will still be meeting virtually monthly and the HLAA-TC newsletter will release a few issues. And as always, we are constantly updating our social media: this blog, Facebook, Facebook-Group and Linked In.
