One-in-six adults are deaf

Did you know that at least on-in-six adults will experience deafness to some degree during their lives!

Deafness presents at any age and for a multiple of reasons – genetic, ill health, trauma, age etc.

Hearing loss of course increases sharply with age –
approximately one-third of 61 – 70 year olds have a significant hearing loss
approximately three-quarters of those over 70 years have a significant hearing loss.

To assist service providers we can deliver in-house awareness sessions that cover everything form terminology, statistics and more importantly, communication tactics when delivering services to deaf, deafened, hard of hearing and deafblind people.
