As healthcare professionals in the field of hearing health, our job is not only to treat our patients with the utmost standards of care; we are also on a mission to educate the public about the importance of hearing loss and hearing loss care.
With that in mind here are three great resources our patients and readers can use to understand more about hearing loss:
1. Volume Control: Hearing In A Deafening World
Written by Award-winning author and staff writer for The New Yorker, David Owen, this is a great book for understanding more about how hearing works, the origins of hearing loss, and possible solutions that can help us hear better. Also, here is a great podcast with the author that covers some of the main themes of the book.
This website is a great resource that has regularly covered issues in hearing health, including some very interesting articles covering up-to-date research.
3. The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association
As the official organization of hearing and speech health professionals, ASHA offers a wealth of resources, from educational resources, to tools for spreading awareness, to a directory of useful organizations, funding resources, and support services for those with hearing loss.
