My Hearing Loss Story

She’s a fascinating person who has lived around the world, and her blog has stories to match. Read about her experiences learning a new language with hearing loss, what it’s like to live with single-sided deafness, how she compares living in a big city (Madrid) vs. her new smaller seaside town, various medical experiences, and more.
Katherine Bouton has written some amazing books about hearing loss, and she also has a wonderful blog called Smart Hearing. She writes beautifully about things as simple as going for a walk in springtime, to topics as complex as scientific research and clinical trials related to hearing loss. And you’ll find much more too, whether it’s reviews of films featuring deaf characters or how hearing loss affects life and aging.
Shanna Groves of Lipreading Mom started experiencing progressive hearing loss as a first-time mom at age 27 and has since gone on to have three children.
