Information on Phones for the Hearing Impaired, Hard of Hearing, and Deaf
Between 2000 and 2004, estimates of the number of people in the United States with a self-described "hearing difficulty" ranged from 28.6 million to 31.5 million. The number of individuals with hearing difficulty is expected to rise rapidly as the baby-boomer generation reaches and passes age 65.
As compared to other age groups, the percentage of individuals with hearing difficulty is greatest among those individuals age 65 and above. A "hearing difficulty" can refer to the effects of many different hearing impairments of varying degrees. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) refer to hearing impairments as conditions that affect the frequency and/or intensity of one's hearing. Although the term "deaf" is often mistakenly used to refer to all individuals with hearing difficulties, it actually describes a more limited group.
According to the CDC, "deaf" individuals do not hear well enough to rely on their hearing to process speech and language. Individuals with mild to moderate hearing impairments may be "hard of hearing," but are not "deaf." These individuals differ from deaf individuals in that they use their hearing to assist in communication with others. People who are deaf and those who are hard of hearing can be individuals with disabilities within the meaning of the ADA.
