“I believe everybody can learn how easy it is to include and confidently communicate with deaf and hearing impaired people.
If you want to put an end to the isolation and exclusion of large parts of the population who can’t access the information they need, then let’s make it happen!”
COURTNEY’S PRESENTING STYLE
Courtney has been described as the ‘role model you’d wished you had heard as a young woman’
Having lived with a severe hearing loss since birth, Courtney challenges and reshapes the way others think about hearing loss and deafness.
Through sharing her story and experiences she faces in her day-to-day life, you will have a new understanding of what deafness feels like for the one in seven Australians living with hearing loss every day.
Courtney will show you how easy it is to make sure we actively include people with hearing loss in our daily activities and feel confident you’re communicating with them effectively.
Through the topics she discusses, she aims to dispel myths, shift negative attitudes and promote change in the community.
