Because there is no single demographic for people with hearing loss, there is no single correct manner to interact with them or to assist them at work, school, recreation, or other activities of daily living. This paper reviews several articles on various aspects of interacting with the hearing impaired, as well as articles that examine issues that such individuals face in society today. In addition, this paper examines the historical focus on these issues, along with their relevance to vocational rehabilitation both at the present and in the future.
From the Paper:"Who are the deaf and hearing impaired? Can we recognize them at a glance? Are they limited to any one age group, sex, race, or color? The answer to these questions would be "no." People with impaired hearing take part in the same activities as we all do, range from very old, to very young, and are represented in every racial and ethnic group. Hearing loss can be congenital, or it can be acquired by accident, disease, or age. Because there is no single demographic for people with hearing loss, there is no single correct manner to interact with them or to assist them at work, school, recreation, or other activities of daily living."
