Review for Hearing Loss Association Of America, Bethesda, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My HLAA chapter in Michigan has given me and my family encouragement, support, companionship and invaluable information in coping with my quick, unexpected hearing loss eight years ago. Without HLAA I would know nothing about assistive listening devices, CART, and the Americans with Disabilities Act. It is so encouraging to know that I am not alone and that there is help out there for me. The national conventions are packed with information about coping with hearing loss, hearing aids, cochlear implants, emergency warning devices, other support groups, rights guaranteed by the ADA, and whatever else a person with hearing loss needs to live life as fully as possible.

HLAA's advocacy efforts in securing captioned television and movies, hearing-aid compatible phones, captioned airport announcements, hotel accessibility have helped me and millions of other hearing impaired people.
