Hi all! I just posted on the other board not realizing there hadn't been any activity since November 2011 - oops! So I'm copying and pasting my post over here ----
Not only am I hearing impaired myself but I have two children who are hearing impaired as well. We all wearing hearing aids and the whole family is learning sign language. I have progressive hearing loss with severe tinnitus. So far the children do not have progressive loss nor tinnitus. One of the other children has a small blip in her hearing screens - the audio said she'd normally not worry about it but in our case she's keeping an eye on her.... so far, nothing has come of it We also have the whole family tested annually just for good measure through the school system since we have more than 2 people affected by hearing loss.
