Hearing Impairment is ‘invisible’ but common. Some 15-20% of all people will have prolonged hearing difficulty; these problems may be treatable or untreatable. For children, this can affect speech/language development or school progress, and their ability to make friends. For adults, this can affect job prospects, cause intense stress in communication or even social isolation if it develops later in life - which it invariably does!
