I found SHHH (Self Help for Hard of Hearing) shortly after it was formed. My dad wore a hearing aid which didn't help much. What I learned from subscribing to that helped both Mothe and me learn to communicate better with Daddy. Eight years ago, I had to start wearing hearing aids - and learned of the HLAA (Hearing Loss Association of America), then learned that it was the new name of SHHH. Even the advertizements in the HLAA magazine are interesting and informative. I've learned more about all kinds of hearing loss, how to deal with various situations (parties, meetings, being in crowds, one-on-one, etc.) than I ever learned from any ENT doctor I went to. The articles cover a variety of things: assistive technology, various hearing conditions, legal problems, work situations, etc. - and all are written so that even the most uninformed lay person can understand.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
... hope that they have enough money to issue the magazine every month!
