Our Administrator, Bobbi Barras has taken the liberty of writing an ebook: Understanding Hearing Loss. Hearing loss is the most difficult problem to understand. It is known as the silent disabililty because so many people have hearing loss and most won't admit it or don't want to talk about it.
We can't solve a problem by sweeping it under the rug. Like any other problem we have to hit it head on. This eBook: Understanding Hearing Loss may help you understand yourself or someone you know who has hearing loss and struggles with this social-communication problem.
