You’re Not Alone: Books Can Help You on Your Hearing Loss Journey

Nice post on the website of Let’s Loop Seattle, which discusses books for people with hearing loss, including children. You can add your own favorites, either on the original post or on this one. I’m always looking for good new reading on the subject. I’ll be writing about Gael Hannan and Shari Eberts new book, Hear & Beyond, in a future post.

Here’s the URL (which for some reason I can’t link to the title on my page):

  1. Thanks for this, Katherine…. I recommend VOLUME CONTROL: HEARING IN A DEAFENING WORLD, 2019 by David Owen. He has lots of good perspectives/suggestions on hearing and the loss of same. I found his technical experiences personally useful, even though going on 3 years old. He’s HOH himself.


  2. Good idea Katherine. Here are the helpful books on hearing loss journeys that our HLAA West Valley Chapter has read:
    Volume Control by David Owens
    Shouting Won’t Help by Katherine Bouton
    Smart Hearing by Katherine Bouton
    Life After Deaf by Noel Holston
    I’ll Scream Later by Marlee Matlin
    A Quiet World by David Myers
    We are now reading Gael Hannan’s “The Way I Hear It” and have signed up for copies of “Hear and Beyond” that you mentioned by Gael Hannan and Shari Eberts. And we’ll look your comments.
    All these books offer many insights and remind us that we are not alone. Fred and Pat Williams


  3. opening ways for people with hearing loss is so needed and thank you. I have no recommendations at this time. Notably the avenues of face to face local HLAA meetings and others at senior centers and the like have been so diminished by Covid, while the choice not to meet is so reasonable. What i find is people with hearing loss making decisions driven by marketeers who are dollar driven and they are having an impact, even when there product may be cost or otherwise problematic. As to communication for community meetings of all kinds the interest of opening up services for people with hearing loss is almost a non-starter when it was hardly a starter before.
