​​​​​​​​​Introduction To Hearing Impairment

​If you are hearing impaired, it can mean you are partly or completely unable to hear in one or two ears.​

There are four levels of deafness.

  1. If you have mild deafness, you may find it difficult to talk to people especially in noisy places.

  2. If you are moderately deaf, you may not be able to hear someone talking without using a hearing aid.

  3. If you are severely deaf, you need to lip-read or use sign language, even with a hearing aid.

  4. Finally, if you are profoundly deaf, you must rely only on lip-reading and sign language.​​
