What Is HLAA?

HLAA is committed to assist people with hearing loss as well as their families in adjusting to living with the condition. It is also aims to promote public awareness on the importance of early diagnosis, prevention and treatment for people suffering from temporary or permanent hearing loss.

Aside from its annual convention, some of HLAA’s programs and services include:

  • Information and support
  • National support network
  • Website and social media
  • Hearing Loss magazine
  • The Walk4Hearing campaign
  • Webinars
  • Hearing loss support training
  • Public policy and advocacy


People who are experiencing difficulty in hearing are advised to talk to an audiologist and get professional advice to receive proper diagnosis and treatment options. Audiologists are in the best position to decide whether there is a need to undergo diagnostic evaluation services or hearing rehabilitation.

For people suffering from hearing loss, it is easier to adjust if they have support from immediate family members, there are organizations like HLAA that protect their rights and position in the society, and they are receiving the best possible medical care for their condition.
