Hearing loss is unique because it always involves communication, and communication always involves two people, the speaker and the listener, hence it affects relationships. At least 1 in 10 people has a significant hearing loss, making it a prevalent, chronic disability. During this presentation, there will be a brief look at the outer, middle and inner ears. Each area functions differently, but they are all necessary and fit together in an amazing way.
