Today, wrapping up an exciting week in Toronto and Mississauga, Canada, for our annual FrontRow International Sales Summit, it is not the unexpected snow, chilly rain or wind gusts that have my attention.

Deaf History Month and FrontRow

Posted by Marcia Barahona

Though today we build technology to serve the broad communication needs of all students and school staff, FrontRow began life in 1963 as Phonic Ear, a company focused on the needs of students with hearing impairment and their parents, audiologists, speech-language pathologists, and teachers of the deaf and hard-of-hearing.
