What is N-CHATT?
The Network of Consumer Hearing Assistive Technology Trainers (N-CHATT) is a volunteer consumer train-the-trainer program. The program’s goal is to build a network of consumer trainers with the knowledge and skills necessary to train others impacted by hearing loss. Trainers will assist others in the successful integration of hearing assistive technology to support individual hearing and communication needs at home, work, school, and the community.
What comprises the N-CHATT program?
N-CHATT training includes webinars and online modules, which are completed over a period of six months, followed by an in-person two-day training session in the Washington DC metropolitan area with presentations on training activities and hearing assistive technology topics, hands-on technology exploration, and opportunities for training practice and interactive learning. Upon successful completion of the training, individuals attend the HLAA Convention and commit to conducting at least three community-training events within one year of the start of the program.
Who are the consumer trainers?
Consumer trainers are adults with hearing loss and parents of children with hearing loss who use hearing assistive technology. They are passionate individuals comfortable using technology and experienced making presentations.
How do I apply?
Visit the HLAA website N-CHATT-Training page for more information. Questions about the N-CHATT program should be directed to N-CHATT@hearingloss.org. Online applications will be accepted through July 18, 2016.
