Meetings:

Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA) Chapters are local or area-wide organizations offering regularly-scheduled meetings and programs. The Chapters offer emotional support, camaraderie, tips and techniques for living with hearing loss, and technical information about hearing assistance devices. They are self-help organizations dedicated to education, advocacy and support for people who do not hear well. The meetings are free and open to the public.
