Let Me Hear You Seminar by the Author of "Ready To Be Heard"
Top Deaf Actress and Author of the upcoming book "Ready To Be Heard: How A Young Woman's Hearing Loss Changed Her Life For The Better"

One of the top Deaf actresses in the country! As seen with Marlee Matlin in ABC Family's "Switched at Birth," on NBC's "Bad Judge" with Kate Walsh, the award winning Disability Film Challenge film "Passengers" and much more! Amanda is also the author of the upcoming book "Ready to be Heard: How a Young Woman's Hearing Loss Changed Her Life for the Better!" In the book she talks about her life growing up with a hearing disability, where she struggled, how she overcame educational and social challenges, and what her parents did that helped her overcome all odds! Amanda started losing her hearing at the age of 4. She never let it stand in her way or slow her down. By the age of 22 she had lost 100% of her hearing in both ears but had taught herself the skills she needed to survive and finish her college education. Now she not only inspires others to overcome their own struggles but holds two college degrees and has a successful acting career. Amanda continues to break down barriers and defy the odds. Despite being 100% Deaf she communicates in clear unaccented English. She is also bilingual and does speaking engagements in American Sign Language when requested. Suggested speaking topics include: - Inspirational Speaking: How To Overcome Any Obstacle - 5 Ways to Communicate with the Deaf/ Hard of Hearing - Overcoming a Disability: How I Did It. - Get Motivated: How To Start Pursuing Your Dreams - Handling Hearing Loss Like A Pro - Deaf Stereotypes and Misrepresentation in the Media. - 5 Ways To Make Your Business More Accessible - Workplace Inclusion To learn more about Amanda McDonough visit her website: www.amanda-mcdonough.com
