Hearing Impairment

Chart provided by World Wide Hearing

Communication Break-Down


If you can’t hear… you can’t learn to speak
If you can’t speak… you can’t COMMUNICATE in a hearing world
If you can’t communicate… you’re socially and economically deprived

Usually this leads to:

1) Low sense of self-worth, insecurity
2) Lack of education, timidity
3) Stigmatization in many societies
4) Social isolation, under employment
