The Hearing Loss Association of America advocates for equal access and political empowerment for approximately 48 million Americans with hearing loss. We work with industry and government to expand access to mainstream and assistive technologies, enforce existing disability laws, regulations and standards to impact the lives of people with hearing loss. HLAA promotes self-advocacy for its constituents to ensure equal opportunity in the areas of telecommunications, employment, health care, education and community life.
In these pages you will find ideas and tools you need to advocate for communication access. We have included information about federal laws that impact people with hearing loss, news about the laws and people who are working to create better access, tools you need to be the best advocate you can for people with hearing loss, and updates on the work HLAA is doing to ensure that people with hearing loss have greater access wherever we are so we can fully participate in all aspects of life.
