  • 2022 Message
    Hello, I am wrapping up the year 2022 this week for a much needed two week tech free holiday to spend time with cherished family and friends. Funny how it seemed only yesterday that I retreated to reflect on the year 2021. I treasure this time of the year because it gives me a rare opportunity to conduct an inventory of my motivations and values; my relationship with my family, friends, and colleagues; and, my work. But, it is also a time to assess my learning curve and to identify areas of improvement. I cherish the moment because it is the time of the year when I get to compose my year-end review of the year, not just a catalogue of the chronology of my activities, but also my heart and my business soul.
  • Access at the theatre
    You never know what’s going to happen until you ask. Few weeks back I wanted to treat my husband to a comedy for his birthday and saw that the Kingston Grand Theatre was having a show that looked intriguing. One problem, I wanted to be able to enjoy the show too! I emailed the theatre to ask if interpreters can be provided knowing how short notice it was. 
  • Sticky Situations in Hospitals

    Have you ever seen Squid Game? Do you remember the dalgona cookie challenge? How each player had to patiently and methodically lick or prick their way against the countdown before they were eliminated for good? Can you imagine being trapped in a life-threatening situation forced to play a game that may determine whether they survive? Deaf and Hard of Hearing patients often end up in situations like these, where they are trapped by necessity and circumstance. They show up to the emergency room or to their doctor’s office and are not provided the communication access they need so they can discuss their needs or decisions, often leading to miscommunication, misdiagnosis and mistreatment. 

“Ensuring we support Kingstonians ability to more fully participate in the economy is really important.  Over the years we have noticed increasing numbers of participants who need accommodations and programs that are designed to support inclusiveness. Leah and SignAble Vi5ion has been a tremendous resource to support our awareness and understanding of how to ensure all our entrepreneurs and business owners can have the best experience possible accessing our supports.”
