OUR MISSION: To open the world of communication to people with hearing loss by providing information, education, support and advocacy. • Education: Our primary purpose is to educate ourselves, our families, friends, coworkers, teachers, hearing health care providers, industry, government, and others about hearing loss. • Self Help: HLAA believes people with hearing loss can help themselves and one another to participate fully and successfully in society. HLAA promotes self-confidence; empowers individuals with skills to improve their lives; and provides an opportunity for affiliation among people with hearing loss, their friends, families, and professionals. We work to develop options for ourselves and open doors for others. • Advocacy: HLAA is a leading voice in improving communication access for people with hearing loss.
