If you are deaf or have hearing loss, Cuyahoga Valley National Park offers a range of services to help you have a great visit.
Boston Mill Visitor Center has an UbiDuo available upon request at the front desk. Point to the UbiDuo sign, if needed. The UbiDuo is a communication device that enables deaf, hard of hearing, and hearing people to communicate face to face using a set of keyboards. Both users can type at the same time. The visitor center also has assistive listening (AL) devices available upon request. The person assisting you can speak into the headset and it amplifies the sound in your headset, through your hearing aids if you prefer. All videos in the visitor center have no sound. During the COVID-19 pandemic, staff have clear masks to aid lip reading.
For certain programs, AL devices are available upon request. The ranger will bring them and offer them to the group. These programs are identified by an AL symbol in the park’s seasonal Valley Guide newspaper and in the online calendar.
