LIHUE — A new tool for people who are deaf, hard-of-hearing, or deaf-blind is now available statewide.
Developed by the Hawaii State Disability and Communication Access Board, the new Communication Access Card is a quick, convenient and comfortable way for individuals with communication access needs to self-advocate for their preferred communication method.
“This new card can make a big difference for everyone in Hawaii by improving our communication during conversations involving individuals who have difficulty hearing or are unable to hear,” said Francine Wai, DCAB executive director.
The card can be individually customized by the user.
Communication Access Cards are available at no cost in two sizes.
On Kauai, cards are available at the state Department of Health Kauai District Health Office, 3040 Umi St., Lihue.
