Chronicle of a deaf audiologist

My biggest challenge with hearing loss

I was born with normal hearing. My hearing loss progressed quickly. When I graduated high school, I had profound hearing loss in both ears (i.e., I am deaf). I struggled for years. I am no longer struggling. It’s been a combination of awesome technology and skill development. I want to share what I know about the skill development aspect.
