Presentation to the Victorian Bar Association on Indigenous hearing loss and the criminal justice system.

: Phoenix Consulting

This video recording provides advice for those working within the criminal justice system for improving communication with people who have hearing loss or other listening problems. Dr Damien Howard's presentation to the Victorian Bar explains how hearing loss impacts on justice and offender rehabilitation.

Key aspects of improving communication include:

  • preparing people for the criminal justice process
  • allowing people to tell the story in their own way
  • informing people of topic changes
  • watching for facial and body language cues to misunderstanding
  • avoiding jargon and technical terms
  • using amplification devices, as appropriate
  • avoiding judgements of intelligence and honesty on the basis of speaking capacity.
The video has also been converted into audio only and is available from the link below.
