Hearing Loss Association of America
February 24, 2011

HLAA is an organization for people with hearing loss, started by a very special person, Rocky Stone in 1979. HLAA's philosophy is three-pronged: education, advocacy and support. We begin by finding out everything we can about our hearing loss - what causes it, what to do about it, how to understand the changes it brings to our lives. Secondly, by becoming educated consumers, we begin to pinpoint the things that are lacking in society for people with hearing loss and we learn how to advocate for ourselves and others. Third, we realize that if it weren't for HLAA, we would be lost in self-pity and frustration about our hearing loss, and we begin to reach out to others. We pay it forward. HLAA is truly vital to the 36 million people with hearing loss in the United States. Hearing loss affects everyone.
