13 May Hearing Loss Does Not Discriminate
We all know that hearing loss doesn’t discriminate based on age. Hearing loss due to illnesses, genetics, medications or injury crosses generational lines and can affect everyone from the very young to the very old. But when it comes to hearing loss, children and teenagers face particular challenges that are unique to them.
Hearing loss has a tendency to paint life with a broad brush, no matter what age you are. But for young people, and teenagers in particular, hearing loss affects everything from education to social life to confidence level and vocational choices.
