Characteristics of Disability: Untreated hearing loss can affect your ability to understand speech and can negatively impact your social and emotional well-being. There is help for persons with hearing loss, but the first step is to visit an audiologist, who can evaluate your hearing and determine the type and degree of your hearing loss.
