Hearing Loss Convention Fun

Hearing loss conventions are so much fun! You meet some of the best people in the world and learn things too. Both Julia and I (Chelle) have been to several conventions and we have have a good time. As we prepare for our journey north to Vancouver, Canada for the SayWhatClub annual convention, we thought we would share some past memories with you.

Podcast Accessibility for Hearing Loss

When we started Hearing Loss LIVE! almost two years ago we started with a podcast right from the beginning. We wanted our podcasts to be accessible to those with hearing loss AND our hearing family and friends. Our podcasts include: video with captions, a transcript and audio. We give everyone a chance to learn more because statistics are, one in five people have hearing loss. We are all dealing with hearing loss.

Inclusion for Hearing Loss

One in five people have hearing loss. The numbers are not going down, they are going to get bigger.  The World Health Organization (WHO) has the most current statistics on hearing loss, February of 2023. WHO predicts that by the year 2050, 2.5 billion people are projected to have some degree of hearing loss. As Julia pointed out in “Our Hearing Partners” blog, if you don’t already have hearing loss, chances are you will experience hearing loss yourself as you age. Start practicing inclusion at home, with family and friends.
