H.E.A.R Me Out Listens to Needs of Hearing Impaired

A new organization launches this week to provide comprehensive information and services available to Colorado’s hearing impaired community. Reaching almost half a million Coloradoans with hearing loss, this organization is the first of its kind to provide all encompassing information of the local and state resources that aims to give new hope to the deaf and hearing impaired.

H.E.A.R. Me Out and its website was founded by Colorado native Darnell Parks, who was born completely deaf in his right ear with profound hearing loss in his left. Parks recognized a significant gap that needed to be filled in the hearing loss community.

The website offers a wealth of resources and information geared toward various audiences. H.E.A.R. Me Out’s online audience includes the deaf and hard of hearing, spouses, family members and friends of those that are deaf and hard of hearing. It includes individuals who simply wish to learn more about the hearing loss culture. The organization has plans in the near future to help train employers and businesses with creative and technological solutions to better serve the needs of hearing impaired employees.

The reality hit Parks hard a few years ago when he was applying for an IT job that required a high amount of work on the phone. Both the company and Parks wanted him to have the job, but both realized that neither of them knew how to solve phone issue so he ended up being passed over for the job.

“What I recognized is that even though hearing loss is the number one disability in the world, there is a major lack of awareness for available technologies that people can use. More importantly from my own experiences, I recognized that there was a lack of understanding for how to facilitate better communication with the deaf and hard of hearing in work environments,” Parks says.
