This paper examines how hearing loss is a physical impediment that leads to the defective function or the total loss of the sense of audition. It looks at how the type and extent of hearing loss varies in each individual, depending on age of onset of the health condition and the factors that triggered the onset and how several factors, which may be hereditary or environmental, can hasten the occurrence of a loss of hearing. In particular, it examines how different research institutes have come up with various kinds of medical and social services to ease the adjustment of people with hearing impediments.

From the Paper:

"It is initially essential to know that there are two general kinds of hearing loss: deafness and hard of hearing, the former being less severe than the latter because some residual hearing is still present to keep an individual's audition, or sense of hearing, functional, although already defective. Deafness, on the other hand, is worse, since as Hardman, Drew and Egan (2005) refer to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, deafness is defined as a "leading impairment which is so severe that the child is impaired in processing linguistic information through hearing with or without amplification, which adversely affects educational performance" (p. 411)."
