2 Canadian Hard of Hearing Association-BC Chapter Driver Visor Kit Bridging the Communications Gap when stopped by Police

3 Canadian Hard of Hearing Association BC Chapter offers a Driver Visor Kit which we hope will make your communications with a Police Officer less stressful for the Deaf or Hard of Hearing person. We also hope it will serve to educate the Police staff about the special communication needs of the hearing loss.
