Coping with hearing loss in a hearing world

Soundz Off Directory

Magazines & Books

Magazines are a useful way of keeping up-to-date with the latest information on hearing loss and realising that there are millions of people in the same situation as us.  There are also several books which make useful reading - they help us realise we are certainly not alone and give an insight into the difficulties, barriers (and triumphs!) of coping with hearing loss in a hearing world. Please also see our Facebook and Twitter page for additional sources of information and our Soundz Off Facebook page.

There is a huge amount of information already out there to help you and we constantly update our list to bring you links to the latest information, equipment and news about all things hard of hearing (HoH). We hope you find the Directory useful and if you have any useful links that you'd like us to add, please contact us.
