Welcome to the Hands & Voices HQ Virtual Waiting Room. This site was created for you, families with children who have been referred to or are in the care of an audiologist and who are receiving those services through technology or “telehealth.” Much of this information is useful for families who are preparing for onsite visits. Instead of sitting in an actual waiting room at a clinic, some families are in our homes or a remote location waiting to connect with an audiologist through the internet. This connection provides potentially a safer and more convenient way to get important and quality services. What families may lack, however, is some of the information and resources that often are built into an in-person waiting room experience. And that is what we are recreating here: unbiased information, resources, and connections for families as we embark or continue our journey with their child. Please spend some time, look around, grab a cup of coffee or tea and explore all that is possible for your child and family.

“Always ask for a copy of the audiogram before you end the appointment. Even if you don't quite understand what it means, you'll have it to share with someone who does.”
"Remember that audiologists don't always know what you need to know. Communication needs to be bi-directional to ensure that both the family and the audiologist share what is most important to know about your child."
