Although hearing loss is often associated with older people, the reality is not hearing well is an “equal opportunity” condition. Young adults deal with issues with dating, higher education, employment, parenting and other aspects of life which are unique to their age group. There are a number of social media sites relevant to younger people with hearing loss. Visit http://www.hearingloss.org/content/young-adults-0 to find some ideas on 
broadening your social network and information about hearing loss.
Going on to further your education? Do you have questions about
how to approach the accommodations you need? This PDF
from Alexander Bell Association for the Deaf is helpful. Find it here...
OUR CHAPTER MEETINGS  are held at ST. PAUL'S EPISCOPAL CHURCH 25 WESTMINSTER RD.(at East Ave.) Rochester, NY 14607.

  Living with a hearing loss is challenging. If you have a hearing loss and are  feeling stressed, anxious, and alone, rest assured there are many others who feel exactly the way you do. If you have a hearing loss or know someone who does and would like more information or to meet others who understand.
