Hearing loss is not just a “senior citizen” issue. Statistics Canada surveys indicate that about 4% of children aged 3 to 5 show signs of hearing loss and 8% of children aged 6 to 19 had hearing loss.  Hearing loss is not a sign of aging!  One audiologist commented that she had fit many babies with hearing aids and they didn’t look a day older.  There are many resources for “the Younger Generation” to tap into.  Here are a few to start you off.  On the National Level, check out The Young Adults Network  https://www.chha.ca/yan/.  In BC, look into the Youth Peer Support Program  http://www.chha-bc.org/youthpsp/  .
