During the month of September, Healthy Hearing will be featuring different bloggers in the hearing loss community. From individuals with cochlear implants to parents of children with hearing loss, we'll take a closer look at some of the top blogs and resources available to you! On Thursday, we highlighted bloggers with 'Professionals with hearing loss.' Additionally, each Friday we will have a featured author, an individual who has published a book about their experiences with hearing loss. Make sure to visit Healthy Hearing's Facebook and Twitter pages to enter to win a copy of each book!
Over the last three weeks, Healthy Hearing has introduced readers to a wide world of bloggers chronicling their own hearing loss or a family member's. These bloggers all fall on different degrees of the spectrum. from a mild to profound hearing loss. Also, some of these bloggers were born with a severe loss, while others developed much later in life or after contracting a disease of some sort.
Regardless of the severity and cause of hearing loss, each of these bloggers' lives have been impacted by their condition and they've been honest and open enough to invite readers into their struggles and successes. The following sites we'll introduce to readers today provide a different kind of service. Rather than entailing the personal trials of hearing loss, these sites offer readers information on technological advances, new products and exciting news in the world of hearing loss and deafness.
