Children and adults with hearing loss (HL) need not always experience social exclusion. A combination of equipment, assistive technology and appropriate strategies can both mitigate obstacles to inclusion and empower children and adults to become successful and self-reliant. A family shares their reflections and strategies from the experience of living with, and supporting others affected by, HL for over 30 years.
