Through the program, David received a new set of hearing aids.

“It has made a big difference in hearing. Both ears are good — equal hearing. I now am a lot more comfortable being in meetings when there are a lot of people in meetings and to respond quickly and to perform in a professional way,” he says.

David notes the staff “were very helpful,” and he “truly would” recommend WorkBC Assistive Technology Services to others.

“I am truly impressed with their communication with helping out client requests,” he says. “They made a big difference in helping me to perform on my job duties.”
