ABOUT THE SPECIAL NEED:
Hearing loss is when sound is either diminished or absent in one or both ears.
There are three causes of hearing loss: a blockage of sound through the ear canal, damage to the nerves that allow you to hear, or a combination of the two.
A few causes of hearing loss are allergies, earwax, foreign bodies, infections, loud noises, and congenital disabilities.
Many of the causes of hearing loss can be treated.
