Hearing loss affects not only the person with the loss but also the loved one’s in their life. But there are ways to make it easier on everyone.
Discrimination is common in our world today for all sorts of reasons and hearing loss is no exception. Many people face this every day in both professional and personal settings. Hearing loss is known as the "silent disability" because you cannot see someone's hearing loss the same way you can see a prosthetic leg or someone's vision impairment.
