Dinner Table Syndrome: Home for the Holidays
Contributed by Hannah Hayes, Inclusion & Diversity Committee

"Mom, what did Sarah say? Why is Sam not going to be here? I don't understand!" Mom's response, "Don't worry about it. It doesn't concern you." These are common conversations we may think nothing of, but they intentionally or unintentionally leave family members or co-workers out of daily interactions. During the holidays, those with a hearing loss often dread corporate parties and family get-togethers because they know they will not be able to participate the same as everyone else. This is called Dinner Table Syndrome. Does your interaction include or exclude others simply because of their differences or disability? Read more about Dinner Table Syndrome here. Happy Holidays!
