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.
