Self Advocacy

The Canadian Hard of Hearing Association is pleased to provide you with a Communication Accessibility Checklist. This Checklist is designed to be an easy method for identifying communication barriers encountered by people with hearing loss in private and public facilities. The Checklist may also assist in planning for removal of identified barriers. The Checklist may be used to survey an entire facility or specific areas and components.

The Communication Accessibility Checklist is to be used as a guide to increase awareness of communication barriers which prevent full access to buildings and facilities by people with hearing loss. This checklist is NOT a substitute for federal or provincial accessibility guidelines and/or the appropriate municipal building codes.
