Simply put, we share a common desire to make the most of our hearing loss. We are a diverse group; we wear hearing aids, cochlear implants, we sign fluently, a little bit, and not at all. We are always welcoming new people, so come join us!
Our chapter meetings, held virtually during the pandemic (in the Chicago/Lincoln Park area pre-pandemic) cover the technological and psychological aspects of hearing loss, as well as the vast resources available to us.
Our resources are always advancing with much to learn. Check here for useful news and informational articles that pertain to hearing loss. If you come across a “must-read” article, then please feel free to share it with us!
Effective communication is key to success. We seek to be open about our hearing loss for this purpose, and to do so with confidence makes all the difference. We know the stigma is losing its grip and we seek to be contributors of that.
