New Hearing Aids Help Selma in Her Job Search

Selma is a senior who is currently looking for work, and is trying to upgrade her English teaching certification so that she can teach English as a second language. She has hearing loss, and found she needed new hearing aids.

“My old ones were not working properly anymore,” she explains.

A WorkBC Centre referred her to WorkBC Assistive Technology Services for funding for a new set of hearing aids.

She applied and was quickly approved.

The new hearing aids are making the job search process easier for Selma.

“[The hearing aids] make it easier to hear and respond to questions and to carry on a conversation.”

Selma says that she would recommend WorkBC Assistive Technology Services to others in need.

“Of course,” she says. “[They are] great and helpful people.”

WorkBC Assistive Technology Services is operated by Neil Squire. Assistive Technology Services are available to individuals who have a work-related barrier due to a disability or a functional limitation. This may include barriers related to traveling to and from the workplace.
