Communication Strategies: It Takes Two to Tango!
-Patricia B. Kricos, Ph.D. - University of Florida, Gainesville, Florida

Communication is a two-way street, and both the listener with the hearing loss, and his or her communication partner, can
play a role in reducing the problems that may arise during a conversation. Below are some communication strategies for
both the listener and the communication partner that may significantly reduce conversational difficulties:


Verify what you think you heard

Listener:
If you have the slightest doubt that you understood a message correctly, confirm the details with the talker. It could save you some embarrassment or complications later.
 

Communication partner:
When giving directions, such as where and when to meet for a meeting, ask your partner who has a hearing loss if she is clear on the directions by saying something like, “Did that make sense?”
 
Accentuate the positive

Listener:
Use positive words when you need help from your communication partner, such as “Could you please speak a bit louder?” instead of “You’re going to have speak louder if you want me to understand you.”
 
Communication partner:
When the listener with a hearing loss asks you to say something a little bit louder, take it as a compliment! It means she really wants to understand what you are talking about.
 
Be assertive
 
Listener:
Politely let your communication partner know what you need to make the conversation flow more easily. At a group meeting, for example, if everyone is talking at once, suggest that only one person at a time talk. If you are on a conference call, suggest that each participant identify himself or herself when they say something, such as “This is Pat. I think we should have the fundraising event on a weekend.”
 
Communication partner:
If the person you are talking with indicates that they have a hearing loss and need you to speak a bit louder or a bit slower, try to accommodate their needs, but like Goldilocks and the porridge, it needs to be “just right”; i.e., not too slow, not too fast; not too loud, not too soft.” The accommodations you make will enable the conversation to flow more easily for both of you.
