I am among the retired/aged members of this website and by now quite hard-of-hearing (hoh). I also write and still into posting online memoirs, vignettes, blogs, short stories and assorted pieces of non-fiction. About a dozen or so years ago I invited via the growing Internet other hohers (whatever their ages, self-identification discouraged) to tell me what and how they and their families experienced having their own personal hearing disability. I got feedback from many hohers like myself and also from several professionally knowledgeable people. I certainly had enough for a fair-sized blog. Every few years I prepare and post an update and include any new feedback.
I recently updated my blog on talking to the hoh and posted it online at: http://wanttohearyou.blogspot.com/
The new blog’s title and headings:
