Community Ear & Hearing Health Journal – Issue 14
Living with hearing impairment
This issue of Community Ear and Hearing Health aims to go beyond hearing impairment as a medical concern by highlighting the experience of people who are deaf or hard of hearing. It stresses in particular the obstacles they must face and overcome. It also aims to show that many of the difficulties experienced by people who are deaf or hard of hearing are not due to their hearing impairment alone, but are greatly compounded by social attitudes and lack of access. By considering the practical needs of people who are deaf or hard of hearing and acknowledging their potential, we can become a more inclusive society.
