Interviews with Deaf/Hard-of-Hearing Older Adults

The NIDILRR-funded Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center on Technologies to Support Successful Aging-in-Place with Long-Term Disability (RERC TechSAge) is conducting an interview study to explore the everyday challenges that Deaf/hard-of-hearing seniors may experience as they age. The study consists of questionnaires and an interview conducted in person or by video phone.

Eligible participants must be between the ages of 60 and 79 and must have become Deaf or hard-of-hearing before age 50. Participants must also be US residents and use American Sign Language (ASL) as their primary language for communication. Qualified participants will be compensated for their time.

For more information, contact Elena Remillard at elena.remillard@design.gatech.edu or 404-385-2564 (voice).
