"I didn't know I had a hearing problem.
It must have come on gradually."

"My husband and I thought our son was just a dreamer.
When he got to first grade the teacher suspected
a hearing difficulty."


Estimates on hearing tell us that between 10% and 15% of the population have some form of hearing loss. Often, because an individual accepts their reduced ability to hear, the difficulty goes unnoticed and untreated. Unable to pick up some sounds and small, brief conversational cues, the person begins to alter their personality and outlook. Even more damaging, these lapses may be interpreted as signs of inattentiveness or reduced capacity. Of more concern, is the growing body of research, indicating the health consequences of hearing loss, including the increased risk of dementia. [Read the Johns Hopkins article.]
