Hearing Impairment and the Deaf Movement Call Today

(352) 729729-3377


By and large, the deaf culture rejects terms related to hearing impairment i.e. “hearing impaired� , although it can be argued that the phrase adequately describes the condition. Call Today

(352) 729729-3377


Terms such as “deaf” and “hard of hearing” are preferred since these words do not insinuate that people unable to hear are handicapped or “less than” in some manner. Call Today

(352) 729729-3377


This critical difference in nomenclature is but one of the significant outcomes of the social movement known as deaf culture. One of the movements core principles is that deafness is a unique human experience rather than a form of disability. Call Today

There are two distinct types of hearing impairment, or deafness: conductive hearing loss and sensorineural hearing loss. Call Today

(352) 729729-3377


The former is a result of physical damage or improper operation of the pathways that carry sound from the outer ear to the eardrum and through the middle ear. Call Today

(352) 729729-3377


Sensorineural hearing loss tends to be related to the inner ear, the cochlea in particular, which is responsible for the conversion of conduction, or physical vibrations, into neural signals, which are electrical in nature. Call Today

(352) 729729-3377


Deaf people are incredibly inclusive and value the power, camaraderie and support of the group. The ability to sign is a unifying force for the culture and is celebrated in a number of ways. Call Today
