Hearing Loss: 1.3 million under the age of 3

According to The Center for Hearing and Communication approximately 12% of the U.S. population or 38 million Americans have a significant hearing loss. A person with a hearing impairment cannot hear or understand the sounds of speech used for communication in everyday life. Most sounds are unable to be heard by profoundly deaf people. For a person who is hard-of hearing, certain speech sounds are difficult for them to understand. The CHC also shares the fact that approximately 3 million children in the United States are living with a hearing loss with 1.3 million of those affected being under the age of three.
