Hard of Hearing and Late Deafened (HH&LD) is a service designed for hard of hearing and late-deafened individuals. 

Services Provided

Peer counseling is a helping process that involves one-on-one interaction or interaction between members of a group, who have several things in common.

Resources and Information

Whether we are born with a hearing loss or acquired later in life as a child, teen or adult, the experience can be challenging. Hearing loss varies greatly. The spectrum ranges from a mild loss to profound deafness. 

If you were born hearing and began to lose your hearing later in life, it takes some time to adjust to life with a hearing loss. Growing up hard of hearing is also unique. At GLAD, the Hard of Hearing Specialist can work with you to access information and resources which will empower you to live better with a hearing loss. 

Coping Strategies

People who start to lose their hearing know it can have a big impact on life, but they may be surprised by the way it can affect their emotions. They might feel helpless or depressed, and get angry or frustrated. All are normal reactions. At CODIE, we provide resources and tools to assist you to face those feelings and get through this tricky transition.

Options for Hard of Hearing Children

Hearing loss can affect a child’s ability to develop communication, language, and social skills. The earlier children with hearing loss start getting services, the more likely they are to reach their full potential. If you are a parent and you suspect your child has hearing loss, CODIE Hard of Hearing/Late-Deafened Specialist has medical and coping resources for you.

Communication Devices

Along with medical intervention and hearing aids, there are many devices and services available to help improve and support communication in daily life. At CODIE, we have communication devices and technology demonstration and resources on how to receive them.
