Hearing Impairments

Impairment of the sense of hearing.

Hearing Impaired is a technically accurate description of someone who is hard of hearing or who has no hearing … however, many Deaf, hard of hearing and late-deafened people prefer not to be called impaired. They don’t want to be primarily defined by their lack of (or poor) hearing.
