2 Senses for Awareness

Orientation

Environmental Disconnect

• Uses assistive hearing device and reading lips • Use cane to navigate new environment • Rely on environmental sounds to navigate • Anxiety when hearing aids are not working

• Noisy environments are hard to navigate • Past experience helps build a mental model of the environment • Tactile or Audio cues help orient • Directional sound is limited with hearing aids

• Voice walking navigation requires headphones • Hearing aids amplify all sounds democratically
