All About Hearing Loss

Couple walks on pier as they talk all about hearing loss.

The Internet is filled with useful information for people with hearing loss, but sometimes finding that information means wading through some not so helpful things. People Hearing Better has put together a list of informative websites and blogs that are all about hearing loss!

Hearing Loss Information Sites
39 million Americans have some form of hearing loss. Untreated hearing loss impacts every aspect of a person's life. It can have a serious impact on health, income, relationships, and mood. All of our senses are personal, but hearing is complex and websites that are not exclusively all about hearing loss might not provide the same wealth of up-to-date information. Below is a list of websites that have been all about hearing loss for many successful years.

  • American Hearing Research Foundation
  • Hear the World Foundation
  • National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders
  • American Speech-Language-Hearing Association
  • Association of Late Deafened Adults
  • Center for Hearing Loss Help
  • Hearing Loss Associates of America
  • Hearing Health Foundation
  • American Tinnitus Association
  • Hearing Loop Technology
  • For Parents and Children

    Childhood hearing loss is the number one birth defect in the United States, and is also on the rise among children and adolescents. Noise, accidents, and illness are all ways in which children's hearing can be damaged. The top websites on children and hearing loss try to answer and inform the difficult questions and concerns helping parents to learn all about hearing loss.

  • My Baby's Hearing
  • The Children’s Hearing Institute
  • Foundation of Sight and Sound
  • Hearing Impaired Kids Endowment Fund
  • Kids Health
  • Gallaudet University for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing

    There is a lot of information online and via audiologists available to people with hearing loss, but some questions are more personal than clinical. In these instances, advice from someone who's already experienced the stress and uncertainty and challenges of hearing loss can bring about reassurance and clarity.
