Let's Loop Colorado is a collaborative, nonprofit initiative dedicated to increasing the hearing accessibility by advocating for education and industry standard installation of hearing loops across the state. Hearing loops provide clarity and ADA communication access in public and private spaces for people with hearing loss.
The two goals are:
1) increase the consistent utilization of hearing loops by venues and consumers
2) increase the number of quality hearing loop installations
Over the past several years, through the work of many people who want to make a difference for people with hearing loss, hearing loops have been installed in various venues in Colorado.
Now, this grassroots, volunteer collaborative initiative brings together the previous initiatives to promote, support, educate individuals about existing hearing loops, and support efforts to increase hearing loops in Colorado.
Across the country, there are approximately three dozen hearing looping campaigns. These campaigns began in 2010 with the “Get in the Hearing Loop” campaign, launched by the American Academy of Audiology and the Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA), based on Dr. Myers' pioneering work in western Michigan.
We do not advise individuals about hearing aids. For Colorado information please visit:
