Review for Hearing Loss Association of America, Bethesda, MD, USA
HLAA, formally SHHH, is a premeir hearing loss association for helping those with hearing loss to connect, educate, advocate and seek legislation in support of accommadating persons with hearing loss. In my wife's case she was able to get the best available hearing assistive devices along her journey toward total deafness by learning about the different companies and technologies. Her deafness was overcome with bi-lateral cochlear implants. The national organization and local chapters provide the needed support for those with all degrees of hearing loss. Also, the social interaction provided in this group helps HOH people to improve their social skills and to be more open to their enviroment thereby improing their quality of life and their ability to communicate with others. My wife's first hearing dog came from Dogs for the Deaf and we learned about them through a national convention of HLAA (SHHH). We are members, volunteers, donors and general public and the role did not offer more than one choice.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
make sure we are doing everything to reach all those in need of this wonderful organization. However, I know that we (our organization) does all it can with the resources at hand. Grants and gifts of resources and more volunteers would enable us to do more.
