(asha.org) Although a majority of those living with any type of hearing impairment lose their ability to hear with age, statistics show that, "...12 out of every 1,000 persons with hearing impairment is under 18 years of age." These facts and statistics only go to show that there are so many people in this world living with all different types, degrees and configurations of hearing loss, and so many people affected may feel all alone when they are the only member of their families or friends who is or has recently become hearing impaired.The goal of is to connect a society of peers together to support one another through perhaps unexpectedly becoming deaf and learning how to navigate through a silent world, or for those that have been living with hearing loss for many years and merely wish to connect with others who are also hearing impaired.
At times I do get frustrated and wonder why I'm putting myself out there for all to see.
Hello applebutter, It has been almost two years since you posted.
Just wanted to know if you have found the right friend you were looking for.
With the use of sign language, lip reading and computers, a person who is deaf has many of the same advantages as anyone living in the hearing world.
The philosophy of is that, along with professional medical help, there is power in numbers.
So I'm left wondering what else I can do to make this happen? Anyways I'm here for anyone who wants to chat and goof off lol.
