Thousands persons deny ductive and because thcs 1 themselves pro- enriched lives ...__, are unwilling to admit that their hearing is inadequate. Many falsely believe that wearing a hearing aid w i l l make them less acceptable members of social or business groups. This is exactly contrary to fact. The deafened impose a constant strain on those who surround them. Having to talk louder, or even shout, becomes such a burden thai friends, family and business associates tend to withdraw from communication with the deaf person.
