Hidden Hearing Help

Each May hearing and speech advocates raise awareness about disorders related to hearing loss, during Better Hearing and Speech Month.

The awareness month was created by The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. The hope is to encourage hearing loss screenings, promote hearing loss prevention, and motivate people to seek treatment for hearing-and-speech related issues. 

So what are some of the reasons people may elect not to improve their hearing? And why might some of those reasons be outdated? The Hearing Aid and Audiology Specialists at Lake Ear, Nose, Throat & Facial Plastic Surgery shared some insight.

Hearing Health

The ability to hear is something we usually take for granted, that is, until we begin to lose it.

More than 50 million Americans have hearing loss. This includes one in five teenagers and 60 percent of our returning veterans.

We talked to the Hearing Aid and Audiology Specialists at Lake Ear, Nose, Throat & Facial Plastic Surgery to learn more about the types of hearing loss that can affect us and how they are treated.
