The Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA) is a voluntary, non-profit organization whose mission is to open the world of communication to people with hearing loss by providing information, education, support and advocacy. HLAA provides assistance and resources for people with hearing loss and their families to learn how to adjust to living with hearing loss. HLAA is working to eradicate the stigma associated with hearing loss and raise public awareness about the need for prevention and the importance of regular hearing screenings throughout life. The Hearing Loss Association of America impacts on communication access, public policy, research, public awareness, and service delivery related to hearing loss. Its national support network includes an office in the Washington D.C. area, 14 state organizations, and 200 local chapters. In addition, HLAA brings consumers and policy makers together to learn about communication access at the national, state and local levels. HLAA staff works at the national level to affect legislation that impacts people with hearing loss, whether it’s funding for hearing aids and cochlear implants, communication access to telecommunications or in public places, or other important issues.
