When it's hard to hear
Condon, Judith
Published by Watts, 1998

An interesting information book using colour photos and drawings. There is information about levels of deafness and causes of it, lip reading, hearing aids and various implements that help the deaf: loop systems, text phones, vibrating pages, transmitters, video subtitles, etc. We meet deaf people and learn how they cope. There is also information on a number of famous people with hearing problems. A glossary and a list of helpful organisations complete a really useful book.
