Providing training for law enforcement about working with deaf and hard of hearing populations is one of the 2020 priorities of the Idaho Council for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing.

Executive Director and Communications and Outreach Coordinator of the council, Steven Snow and Sierra McIver, respectively, will present the workshop to emergency-response teams throughout the state free of charge and provide visor cards and other resources to people who are deaf.

Those who would like to be involved in collaborating with their local police departments or other emergency-response personnel to arrange the training, which lasts 1.5 to 2 hours, in their area, are welcome to comment below.

Additionally, American Red Cross of Greater Idaho has received grant funding for Sound the Alarm, a program through which it distributes smoke detectors free of charge. The initiative provides bed-shaking alarms to people who are deaf or hard of hearing.

Idaho residents who are interested in receiving an alarm through the program are also welcome to comment below.
Idaho National Laboratory K-12 Education Enrichment Program volunteers will present a workshop for elementary-school students who are deaf or hard of hearing and their families at Lincoln Elementary School (358 E. 2nd S.) in Rexburg Jan. 29 at 6:30 p.m. It will be delivered in English with American Sign Language interpreting. Presenters will wear the FM-system and remote-microphone transmitters of those who supply them.
Parking will be available on both the north and east sides of the building; participants can enter the school through the door on the north side of the building, turn right, and go down the hall to Room 10, the school's music room.

Families interested in attending the workshop can register at Those who have questions about the event are welcome to contact Melissa Bair at [email protected].
Do you know any individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing ages 13-22? Please share as they have the chance to win a $50 gift card. We are particularly in need of participants who use LSL. Thank you!

Emily has bilateral hearing loss, central auditory processing disorder and central hearing loss. She is the 2023 recipient of bilateral Phonak Lumity 90-R hearing aids as a donation from Strickland Ear Clinic, Agbell Idaho Chapter and Phonak.

Thirty-eight million Americans report having some degree of hearing loss and still people do not have their hearing checked as part of an annual health visit or are ever referred for a hearing evaluation. Mild hearing loss doubles the risks of dementia and individuals with moderate and severe hearing loss are 3 and 5 times more likely to develop dementia.

The Strickland Ear clinic can help find a treatment that addresses your condition in a way that works for you!! We believe good hearing connects us to each other!!

MAY is Better Hearing Month!! If you are struggling to hear or someone you love is not hearing well call and get a baseline evaluation with an audiology and hearing aid demo if’s life changing!! Seriously!


Each year AGBELL Idaho Chapter, Strickland Ear Clinic and Phonak donate one set of hearing aids and services to an individual that needs help with their hearing, an adult or a child. This past year in 2020 Jasmine was selected as the recipient. She has a history of an IEP when she was in grade school and has not been able to finish her cosmetology exams/degree because of hearing and processing issues as an adult. Her two boys also have been diagnosed the CAPD and use amplification at school. She reported dizziness and anxiety especially when she is driving and has to pull off the road and her husband has to come and get her. Since being fit with the Phonak Marvel 90-R hearing aids she has less anxiety and is not dizzy. She wears the devices at all waking hours and is also receiving vision therapy as well. Jasmine is grateful for the donation and can't image life without the devices now. AGBELL Idaho Chapter, Strickland Ear Clinic and Phonak are helping kids in Idaho hear and use spoken language to learn and grow!!!

Spencer is a 4-year-old twin that was recently diagnosed with bilateral conductive hearing loss at the Strickland Ear Clinic. After obtaining an MRI to rule out superior canal dehiscence, the MRI indicated that his malleus bone was rotated and not able to be surgically fixed.

He was fit January 14, 2020 with bilateral Phonak Sky Marvel90-PR hearing aids in electric green and black cat-eye earmolds.

Special thanks to Phonak, AGBELL Idaho and the Strickland Ear Clinic for helping kids in Idaho hear and use spoken language to learn and grow!!👂🏻👂🏻👂🏻❤️❤️❤️👂🏻👂🏻👂🏻

Cochlear Implants in Children

Cochlear implant technology brings with it a RESPONSIBILITY to support this new access to sound. An appropriate educational intervention program optimizes the integration of auditory learning with spoken language and literacy skills. Teachers and clinicians with appropriate educational preparation and experience are essential to ensure successful spoken language acquisition for children with cochlear implants and their families. It is the skillful combination of lively human interaction and cochlear implant technology that stimulates the maximum development of spoken language competence. AG Bell

Sometimes you have to advocate for yourself! Laura you are AMAZING



Knowing your educational rights are a vital part of ensuring your child has access to the learning environment he or she needs to succeed. However, this process can be difficult even for people who have experience with education law. AG Bell

Possibilities are endless! Way to go Laura--you are inspiration itself.

Kaiden reported that while wearing a demo pair of hearing aids while he waited for the new Phonak Marvel 90 hearing aids for the pediatric donation from AGBELL Idaho, Phonak, and Strickland Ear Clinic he has been able to reduce his homework by one hour each night, has less anxiety and is less frustrated during the day. Kaiden has central auditory processing disorder and with mild gain has been able to reduce the effort and strain during his school day!! Congratulations Kaiden awesome to see your successes already!


This is so true. People with hearing loss are struggling and don’t even know it...or sometimes they do know it and they don’t know where to turn. I hear it from my patients every day. Hearing isn’t life or death but it affects the quality of life and those around you!! You are worth it ... stimulate the auditory cortex!!


Robin is one of the most deserving patients for the AGBELL Idaho/Phonak/Strickland Ear Clinic hearing aid donation for 2018!! She has moderate to profound mixed hearing loss in both ears and has multiple medical diagnoses that include Lippel-Fiel, Noonan and traumatic brain syndromes, cervical myclopathy and spastic paraplegia. I have never heard a negative word from her and she is always upbeat and a joy to visit. I have included here her feelings about chocolate...she is now wearing Phonak Nadia Belong 90-SPs with white gray and turquoise earmolds. You ROCK Robin!
