Each of us has a different way of getting through this world that we live in. We are full of character traits, limitations, and strengths. Those who are unable to hear are able to do most of the things that the rest of us can. They simply might approach it a little differently. We want to educate and enlighten when it comes to the issues, programs, and resources that are associated with those dealing with deafness or other conditions involving hearing loss.

The two main ways that a person is able to communicate is through auditory or visual stimulation. A person who is deaf is only able to use visual communication due to a severe or total hearing loss. It is also defined as someone who cannot recognize speech through sound alone. If you're communicating with someone at the office or at school, you may need to find alternative methods of having a conversation than just talking. But every deaf person has found their ideal way of getting through these situations.

There are more than three hundred thousand people living in Canada today who are categorized as being deaf. On top of that, there are another 2.5 million who suffer from some level of hearing loss. You might find some living in a retirement community or some that are still children. If you know someone who is affected by a condition involving his or her ability to hear then we want to inform you as much as possible about what this sort of life is like. We also want to point you in the right direction when it comes to resources and help that is available to you and that person.

If you're someone who has dealt with deafness for your whole life then you have likely found ways to get through your daily routine. But this is a little different if you're someone who is gradually losing their ability to hear clearly over several months or years. We want to help you navigate your way through when it comes to adjusting to hearing loss and finding new ways of doing regular things as well as treatments. We are also here to help if you have any concerns at all when it comes to issues associated with deafness, whether they be health care related or about human rights. We want to make life as simple as possible for those that are dealing with a loss of hearing.
