MY HEARING LOSS STARTED when MY EARS BURST IN A FLIGHT. AFTER GETTING TREATED, I WENT BACK TO WORK. I COULDN’T ARTICULATE MY HEARING LOSS WELL BECAUSE I DIDN’T UNDERSTAND IT. I KNEW SOMETHING WAS WRONG. I KNEW I NEEDED HELP, BUT I FELT GUILTY ABOUT IT. I WAS AFRAID OF MY HEARING LOSS BEING INTERPRETED AS A LIMITATION. – JACK
With more than 1 in 6 people in Australia living with a hearing condition, it is likely that there are people on your team who have hearing conditions, such as tinnitus, a balance disorder or hearing loss. People often choose not to disclose their hearing condition, for fear of stigma and discrimination. At Soundfair, we understand that good communication is everybody’s business and that inclusion makes for a stronger team.
