Department of Corrections

A hearing-impaired inmate at a correctional facility is at a major disadvantage.

Personnel at these facilities are not typically taught how to interact with an inmate with this type of disability.

The hearing-impaired need proper functioning amplification (hearing aids) to comply with the rules and regulations of life within a correctional facility. Further, interactions with other inmates and correctional personnel can be misinterpreted by both the hearing-impaired inmate and those in charge. Therefore, commands may not be heard correctly by the inmate, which may be taken as being difficult or belligerent.

If there is a possible discrimination issue, Dr. Traynor will assess the situation and provide a professional opinion regarding the appropriate resolution of the case.
