Welcome to my Deaf Awareness page!
Hey guys! I'm Louise and I have a bilateral sensorineural hearing loss of a severe to profound nature. I was diagnosed at the age of 7 years old with no explanation as to what caused my hearing loss (quite a mystery, eh?).
I currently wear two Phonak Nathos Hearing Aids which allow me to hear speech and sound to an extent. I rely heavily on lip reading to support this.
My blog page intends to raise awareness of the daily challenges and successes of myself as a deaf individual. I hope this will be one step towards demolishing negative deaf stereotypes in society and helps readers to become more open minded!
