Hearing Aid Benefits
If a person can hear, then they can learn to speak. If they can speak, then they can begin to communicate.
Communication leads to building confidence. A person is able to be more self-reliant, in turn boosting their self-esteem.
Building communication and confidence leads to integration into society, which gives hope. Growing with others and dreams of attending school, learning a trade, future employment, and community engagement can become real.
